my creative space: april 27

I've had these white strips hanging around for quite a while, so I fused some blue Xs to them.



I'm not sure what I'll do next. Maybe I'll sew back into the strips a bit while I decide whether to wax them, cut into them, connect them, all of the above...?


Stop over at kootoyoo to peek into some other creative spaces.

my creative space: april 21

I've started using the Xs and I really loved the piles of papers that were left behind.

I've been enjoying the gorgeous spring weather these last few weeks while I've taken some pictures around the neighborhood. The patterns and colors invariably catch my eye.



I really love the graphic red marks on my neighbor's amaryllis. They remind me a bit of carbon paper, or rubbings. That red dust that sticks to everything.

my creative space: april 14

I've been playing with the Xs that I've been cutting out these last few weeks, deciding what to do with them. I think I'll work from a grid, but beyond that, I'm enjoying arranging them and taking pictures.

Algebra of the 7 Deadly Sins

I love what I stumble across on twitter. The Algebra of the Seven Deadly Sins is hands down my recent favorite.

my creative space : april 6-7, 2011

I've been a little obsessed with X shapes lately.




I've been using up a lot of my odds and ends of fabric cutting out a ridiculous number of these Xs.


The time is drawing near for me to actually do something with them, but for now I'm enjoying the relatively mindless process of making as many as I can. I've been ruminating on the final uses for these Xs and I have a few ideas, but it's always interesting to see what happens between the idea in my sketchbook and the idea that actually happens once I put fabric to fabric.


I'm happy and relieved to be regularly working in the studio again, and I can't wait to share the progress of these pieces.


I love peeking into people's studios and seeing what they're working on. If you do too, head on over to kootoyou and take a peek.
