So I keep updating my design wall, but this week I’m expanding into the sink area because I’m doing a series of small projects and this is gel glue resist. Starting with a 10″ square pfd fabric, I free-hand drew the rooster and just starting filling in the areas with color. For these smaller projects I mix up a very small amount of the procion dyes and paint in the areas I want. After the dye dries, the gel glue gets rinsed out, and I’ll move forward.
Next, this project just keeps rolling along, but I made a lot of progress with it this week, and I really like where it’s going. For the first time, I think it may be a rather striking piece when I’m finished.
Finally, it’s been warm enough in Michigan that our tulips and daffodils are finally in full bloom – just in time for 38° and blustery. The wind and the rain actually turned some of my tulips inside-out, which, while unexpected, was quite beautiful. Who knew?
