I is for...Igloo - you saw these in an earlier stage - today I just put the backs on, edged them, and added some snowflakes. I might post them tomorrow, otherwise, not until I get back from Ireland, but they aren't due out until mid-Sept anyway. They were fun - and good machine quilting practice.
And I worked on some complex cloth pieces - these are the before pictures - I have soaked the pieces in soda ash solution, and left them slightly damp as my intention was to screenprint with thickened ProcionMX dyes, and as dyes have more of a tendency to spread than screen print inks, I thought that keeping the fabric damp might help to minimise that.
Here's the photo of the pieces after I've done the screenprinting, before they have been batched, rinsed or dried - I included these because I always find that there's a moment of eek! when you think you have really overwhelmed the fabric, but of course, it's always lighter than this in the finished product - vis a vis:
see, not overpowering at all - just right, in fact. Whew! Both designs were screenprinted with thickened dye, using sticky-back plastic (contact paper) on the screen - the left one is just small squares, strips, rectangles, etc; the one on the right had a couple of motifs cut out from the plastic and then repeated across the fabric. I am pleased with both of them, and will be glad to send them on in the morning to the next person to work on them.
