Going in Circles

You didn’t think that I would make irrigation circles that look like the real thing, did you? I spent most of the afternoon, fusing silk fabrics to start a smaller version of the irrigation circles. I made two copies. This one is about 18″ X 21″.  I am having lots of fun with this.

However, while I was pulling out silk fabrics, I found a discharged piece of silk that is just yelling at me. I put it on the design wall and I keep looking for fabrics to work with it. So I feel pulled in two directions. Can I make two pieces at the same time? Oh, and don’t worry, I don’t think that lime green is working, either.

I haven’t posted a photo of Scooter lately, so here he is, doing what comes naturally, sleeping. His winter coat is at least and inch and half long, now. He looks like a little tub of lard!

    I like the green. Great Minds! I’ve been thinking of using crop circles for a piece as well.

    Your original photo is already so abstract there’s no way I expected your finished piece to be literal. I think where you’re going is just right for you,and I can’t wait to see the finished piece in all it’s hand dyed and discharged and shibori glory. 🙂

    I like the lime green. I think it gives the piece a little punch! Love the grids and circles – reminds me of a calendar of color.

    But an adorable tub of lard…
    That fabric is wonderful. Love the lush, earthy, colors. Perfect for your piece.

    I like what you are doing with the crop circles and the discharge fabric is great. Scooter is just pointing out the crop circles on your rug for you – LOL!
