Mark Making

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

I had one of those days. I was doing household stuff this morning and then spent an ungodly amount of time waiting to see the ENT Dr this afternoon. So, finally, tonight, I made it down to the studio and did some mark making on fabric, my version of graffiti.

I first tried doing some monoprints, but was not getting the results that I wanted. I ended up using one of my veterinarian syringes to get the lines that I was looking for. I have an idea percolating that requires some marks on organza, which is on the right.  I uses a washed dupioni  creamy silk as the undercloth which is on the right. I cut a piece for today’s fiber sketch.

Back to the ENT appointment, once I finally got in, he did some poking and prodding and scoping and decided that I need a CT Scan. I was not doing well today as I had an allergy flareup, but it was good that he could see that it is a problem for me. Mr C  has been slacking, and so I did some cleaning over the week-end and got into the dust. He told me that I should wear a good dust mask, even when someone else is doing the dusting and vacuuming. Ha!

Tomorrow morning, I go for the fitting of my new front tooth crown. I hope it fits and looks good so that I can be done with visits to the dentist.

Only one more day until we reveal our latest Twelve by  Twelve pieces with the complements of purple and yellow. I really love what I did and can’t wait to show it.
