Happy New Year

Its been so hot since Christmas – we had more than a week of temperatures over 38C (100F) but finally had a couple of cooler days so I was able to work in my studio. Yesterday I was painting  and printing with thickened Procion dyes. Those pieces are still batching but these pics are from the day before. Above: cotton with background of painted Procion, over printed with a thermofax screen using deColourant discharge paste.
I also got a couple of printing jobs done, labels for community quilts and printed lycra Tshirts for Tai chi classes.

Above and below: thermofax prints on white cotton using some new screens I’ve made. Top is from a photo taken at Esperance of burnt trees. It’s 2 prints using the same screen flipped over for the 2nd print. The other 2 screens below were made from a photo I took at a palace near Berlin of carved stone work.


I wish my readers a Happy New Year and hope it is a peaceful one with enough time for creativity and all the good things you wish for.
Thank you to my followers for staying with me, especially to those who leave comments which I always appreciate.
I haven’t made new years resolutions but hope to continue fabric dye/printing which is my primary focus but also quilts, stitch and more dressmaking. I’ve enrolled in several craftsy classes during their recent sales so have plenty to keep me going! I expect I’ll have distractions with family health issues but will try to post regularly.

  1. Beautiful pieces, as usual, Linda! I love your Thermofax screens – and how you flipped the burnt trees one to make a mirror image!

    Happy 2013 to you!


  2. Lovely work again. My only thoughts for the year is less stress and time for me and machines and that i can restart my blog. I think I will have to create a new one as every time I try they tell me I am not the owner, I guess it is because I changed my server last year.
