Improvise and Make do


Here I am in front of my second assignment in Improvisation with Ricky Tims ( in lovely LaVeta Colorado. ( )

Note the pile of tiny slivered scraps behind my machine keeping that coffee cup warm. And all that thread which I will not use during this week. And underneath my table is the canvas and backings I brought to finish up small pieces—that I thought I would be working on this week.

I brought my two laundry baskets full of solids and prints that I dyed for Nancy Crow workshops in the past( —I am still using those fabrics but have added some prints–and as you can—vibrant ones. The question is always=-==will I have enough of this one to use in this project or should I choose something else. I picked out some fabrics that I knew I had at least a half yard or more to begin.

Tomorrow I start the next piece.

And I’ll see something like this on my way to the workshop.

    Yes, the days have been very full. The class is small and I’ve enjoyed visiting with everyone. Ricky and Justin have dogs–and I get to go upstairs to pet them. I’m starting on a new piece today or maybe three–just not sure at this point. Still getting used to the altitude here.
