Take a look at Surface Design Association. There is some really great and creative works there. There are no items of my own there but I am a member, who knows maybe one day I can show some of my pieces there as well. Here is the link to SDA - http://www.surfacedesign.org.

This item has been moved out from the "unfinished object" pile and now hangs in Wall Flower Pottery Gallery. Constructed by machine and hand quilted of commercially printed batik 100% cotton fabrics, (the solid colors are not batiks). The striped fabric is beaded with small copper color seed beads. The size is approximately 27 inches by 43 inches. A sewn in sleeve on the back allows for this piece to be hung. If you would like to see this piece in person please feel free to visit Wall Flower Gallery in Warwick, Rhode Island or visit the web site. The owner has many beautiful things from local artists. http://www.wallflowerpottery.com/welcome.htm

Today's activity is studio work. Long overdue - but the day is now here. I will be dyeing today. Mono printing is the technique and a color scheme will just have to play second fiddle to that. Using this method most always surprises me. The results are usually very appealing. I will be posting those results at some point over this weekend - however they turn out.

The written word has inspired some to pull out unfinished projects that they may finally achieve their destiny. To come full circle, to be complete. That is what my present activity is. There are so many small unfinished items that have been started, they have become surprises for me when they are found once again. At this time I am working on a wall hanging comprised of small batik squares (off hand I can't recall the exact square size but I believe it is about two to two and a half inches), bordered by solid red and orange. Around that is a larger border of a striped batik- this is the area that I am working in at present. The goal is to have this piece completed over the weekend coming up. The next part is a to give it a name. I will post it here so check back if you would like a view. (See the above entry of February 15 for more about this project.)
