Transforming…

 

    ‘Take what shows up on your plate

    and transform it until it feeds you.’

     

    — Ram Dass

     

    Spring is not too far away and the snow has melted…the days are getting longer…and people are coming out into the light and smiling more. Our surroundings are being transformed.

     

    Doing a bit of transforming on the Clara Cloth . 

    My 'Eye's of March'

     Jude’s eyes have inspired me to put an eye in this…maybe a portal from another time?

     

    I love hand washing…and rack drying. The studio is so dry these days that they dry in no time. These little bits of colored cloth will be transformed into something FUN to wear..       

    Washed and Drying

    I’m thinking, a short kimono style jacket, inspired by this one that I knit about 10 years ago.

    Enjoy this time of transformation…..Shishi

  4. knock. knock.
    i am interested in the hand washing…
    so… you throw all these fabric pieces in together
    to wash? i am guessing it cuts down on little threads
    pulling off…
    i am loving all those colors, lots and lots of
    colors…….. smiling me!

    • yes, I fill a bucket with hot water and a bit of detergent and swish them around…I let them sit for a bit…then swish a little more. Then I rinse ’em, squeeze ’em, and hang ’em. They get a little thready but I just pull them off. I love the hands-on….plus, if I’m at the studio it’s the Only way. No washer there.

      I did 3 batches this week…..addictive.
