A Two Second Post!

I'm just hurrying by, procrastinating on tasks at hand, to spend a minute with you!
Thanks to one and all who offered advice on where to find the Citra Solv. I'll check out the Atlanta Whole Foods tomorrow!

Here's a shirt I've recently batiked for my brother-in-law. Shhhhhh.....don't tell him! I'm sure he never reads my blog, so I'll be safe. It's actually quite a bit more olive than it appears here, and will look nice on him. The turtles are a wonderful reminder of the night we walked the beach in Tortuguera, Costa Rica looking for sea turtles coming up on the beach to lay their eggs.

Gerrie mentioned that she has begun playing around with Shiva Paintsticks. I ordered some from Laura Murray a couple of weeks ago and have begun embellishing some fabric as well:

I really like the gold one on the right...looks like fireworks to me!! Although the silver appears white in the pic, it is really quite attractive. I want to try some stenciling with them, but need to get myself a proper stencil brush.

And last but not least, I've been fiddling around with some of my "dog scarves"....ones that have very obvious bleeds in the gutta lines and I wouldn't even feel comfortable giving away. I decided they would make nice little sashes to wear with jeans or even black slacks. They are about 2" wide and 60" long. Here's my first, in silk crepe de chine:

OK, now it really is time to get to work!!!

DOG scarves? You must be kidding. It's a beaut. Judy - remember, if you can't see it from a galloping horse...

Your brother-in-law will love the shirt.

I'm galloping by as I clean up the studio and all the other myriad Tday tasks. Dog scarves- ha!! Beautiful work - all of it!!
