Today, after tai chi, I'm going to begin a new project. I'll continue with the prayer flags, but I need to begin something new. Or at least finish something that lies languishing on the design board or on the cutting table.
I was picking through my eco scraps yesterday for a new prayer flag and pulled out the spinach and rosemary dyed pieces. The leaf print is a funny one--I'm not sure now what I did on that dye batch, but the leaf came out white with dark outlines. I think it was from some fabric I wrapped on copper pipe for dyeing, but I'm not sure.
The scraps include muslin, flour sacking, silk, cheese cloth, gauze, and some very thin, loosely woven fabric from I don't know where. All these scrappy pieces will become a prayer flag at some point.
Back from tai chi and running errands. Ready to head upstairs to make something. I don't know what, but maybe it will come to me when I start straightening up and putting away a few things.
Should be a good afternoon!
