It’s been rainy and grumpy here for about a week and the unpredictable weather has had me postponing beginning processes for pieces I’ll get to in the winter when it Really gets ugly out. Much of what I do requires space, time, and sunshine. Today I have a sunny day so I’ve been out in the yard overdyeing donated fabrics. The basis of so much of my freedom in creativity has come from people giving me fabrics they don’t know what to do with. Things they’ve bought, having a desire to make something, and then never got to. These fabrics are usually commercial cottons with outdated designs and gaudy themes making it oh so easy to sacrifice them to possibility. That’s the key kids! To be willing to let it all go and see what it can become.
I suggest you dig through your fabric stash and decide what you could be willing to experiment with. Remember, no fabric is trash, it just hasn’t become what it wants to be yet! This one was a white cotton cowboy/cattle ranch print from the early 80’s! Blech! But now look where it’s heading. Exciting times!!!
