– Almost too busy to post: Updates on assemblages

Summer days are full … yard work all morning (before triple digit heat sets in), tending dye pots (they’re not trials anymore), helping the Austin crew pack for their upcoming move, and just plain keeping the homestead running.

Nonetheless, there are some project completions to report: the most recent table mat a-side …

 

and b-side …
Since I couldn’t decide between a ragged edge or a bound edge, I did both …

 

Plus Don’s latest New Mexico assemblage …
Turkey feathers courtesy of our neighborhood Rio Grandes
which joins an earlier work on the wall …

 

And having completed those, we are both in-process with the next creative round.

Mine inspired by a re-visit to Jude Hill’s Cloth-to-cloth …
soon to be dipped in windfall lichen …
Double, double, toil and trouble …

 

as were these thrifted cloths, which have been laundered and dried following Prairie Tea and lichen dunkings …
and Don’s inspired by a sign at the Red Sky Cafe in Duck, NC …

 

Oh yes, Don also got a new toy … the better to make some wooden nine-patches, he says.
Now that should be interesting!

  1. Liz, your cloths, Don's assemblages, give such a wonderful sense of the two of you, how you create Home Stories by celebrating your love of the places you inhabit, the places you visit, the places you remember. It's really all quite wonderful to see and for me, what makes a home is the combination of the creativity of those who dwell inside.

  2. Yes, I love the complimentary give and take between Don's work and yours. That Don has an artistic calling at all pulls at my heart a little. It would be fun to share like you do.
