It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged…I have no excuse…just busy doing other things. Last week it seemed like I spent the whole week working on silk scarves. I needed to deliver some for consignment on my trip to Evansville, so I was dyeing a few, making a pile for consignment and a few for my stash as well as photographing, then listing my stash on etsy. I am trying to be regular with etsy since it is the holiday season and sales will be happening. I sold several scarves last year out of my etsy shop and I would like to be ready for shoppers!
Here is a silk chiffon I dyed. It is a 44″ square. I usually do more than one layer on these, but I think it’s beautiful the way it is and I’m not sure I want to add more to it.
I also joined the Visioning project on SAQA this past week. The project is supposed to help me get organized, aim for goals and hopefully reach them. At the same time, there are artists more advanced than I that will check my page and give me helpful hints. Yesterday I spent some time writing on my page about my goals just for this week. While I was soaking in the tub yesterday morning, I had several ideas float through my brain, so writing helped me to get it in print, which helps me focus better. I also didn’t want to forget those ideas, so I write. I have a solo show in late 2011, and I am hoping that the Visioning project will help me get prepared for that, if for no other reason than I will make commitments and stick to them.
