Three ideas began to form in my head. Babies and mothers being ever present in my mind these days, holy water, and drought. I mulled these things over and over. I started thinking about places affected by drought and Africa came to mind first.
Mothers bathing their infants in countries where water is a precious commodity. And I could see in my mind, cracked dry earth.
Which then led me to think of flour paste resist.
This is one of my favorite techniques. Nice and sloppy and messy! So that is where I am so far with this quilt.
Still working away on Clara's Many Moons. I'm sewing the larger parts together now and working on a border.

I thought I would include this. Psychodelic Llamas! These are screen printed using watercolor crayon and mat medium. I used white school glue for the resist (circles).

Now I will let this dry for 24 hours. When dry, I will go over the designs with MX dye and let that batch for 3 hours or so then rinse out the whole thing.
This is a complex cloth that I just kind of went coo coo on. Then decided to do a block print over the 20,000 layers of dye and stamps and everything else. We'll see how this turns out.
On the weaving front, I finally felt up to crawling around under the loom this morning and tyed it up for a twill. I'm going to warp for two 32" rugs.
