So what am I working on?  Well it’s a bit hard to show you everything as I want to keep some things as a surprise for the Open Studio and also for publication.  It’s a balancing act sometimes.  I’m only managing a few hours a day too due to lack of energy – frustratingly horrid when I want to get on and work. 

Let me show you the fabrics…… hand dyed silks, rayon and velvet. 
Nothing dyes like silk.  Nothing gives wonderful implied texture like silk.
