Things That Keep Me Going

Small Silk Works Posted by Hello

Like everyone I seem to hit periods where all ideas seem to dry up, and I can't even look at my sewing machine. This is the time when I go and do some dyeing outside to try and make things happen again. Colour cheers me up immeasurably, and it is one of the reasons I am not attracted to discharging, or the fading and bleaching of aging. These were small works I made in silk last year when I hit such a period. Both are hand stitched and you can see the stitching if you click on the images. The first one is called wadi- and the silk has been tie dyed and the river/wadi has been dyed and hand printed. The second piece , has also been tie dyed with threads couched on.
