Out of the blue

Grey clouds over Berlin, with a bit of snow - time
to look for blue skies elsewhere...













Two books I bought recently, two blue + white old
and very soft quilt blocks I purchased on Etsy,
for very little money (I´m thinking of making some
cloth including bits of material someone unknown
to me, somewhere, somewhen made - similar as
including "found footage" in some of my mixed-media
works...), a "component" with grey swirls on indigo
I got from Arlee, a blueish creature in the making...













... and a piece of hand dyed blue + beige silk.
I took these "Wave" pieces out of the shop, they didn´t
sell in a while, and I don´t like things sitting around
there for too long, gathering virtual dust...
I had the the bigger piece, before I cut it in four,
pinned to a wall here for some time after I´d dyed it,
considering it for use in a project with words half
hidden behind gaps in the fabric I have in mind -
but then I found it too colourful for me.
Now, looking at this piece, I might reconsider...
But I want to offer one of the four for a swap -
it´s 54 x 66 cm - 22 x 26 inches, and I´m open for
all kinds of offers...

love the idea of swaps - i'll make an offer of any of my eco printed Eucalypt leaves on dupioni silk, and/or i can do one specially for you.
btw, "gerdoll" is the most obvious name for your small people. k.

Would love to swap. Felt? Nuno felt? White? Home dyed with scrap metal rust or vegetation?

I love Georgia O'keefe!
My dream goal is to be able to travel
to Abiquiu and stay at her place.
While traveling once I paced by Abiquiu. It is sooo beautiful. I see
why she loved it there.
Love the fabrics!
