Getting Back To It.............

Well exhibition time is over, the marquee has been 
taken down and packed away for another year and we
have reclaimed our garden.  It's nice to see it again, 
especially as our beautiful poppies are staring to open!

It's time to get back into creative mode again and what 
better way than to get out my printing board
and lose myself in a day of screen printing......bliss!!

So I've been commissioned by a lovely lady to make
a piece of work for her  lounge.  Below are the test pieces 
printed ready to be cut up and pieced for the background.
The design is taken from a Japanese pot.


I've also been printing fabric ready to be turned into book
covers and bags.  
The pieces below are screen prints onto fabric that
had been printed with disperse dyes during a 
previous dyeing day.  Each of the 3 pieces of fabric is
about eight feet long so plenty of room for multiple

Hand dyed fabrics with prints of my design....

Can't wait to start turning these into beautiful
book covers.....

Or maybe they will be bag panels.......who knows...
the possibilities are endless...............
