After many requests for table runners this summer I have been working on a series of them, some of which have matching napkins.They are made of organic cotton and hemp. The table runners are a heavier weight than the lighter muslin of the napkins. This set has been dyed, discharge screen printed with a striped design and then screen printed in metallic copper with one of my little leaf motifs.
I am taking some of them to The Live Art Shop in Kaslo this week. I’ll also be listing some in my Inkyspider shop on Etsy and taking some to Christmas by the Lake, a wonderful local event held every year in Silverton – Dec 2nd and 3rd
This being my first post on my brand new website, I thought I’d share with you a photo of my work table. I plan on making this a regular feature since so often I find myself stopping to admire the combinations of fabrics, buttons and works in progress on my table. This photo was taken last night and today all of these wrist cuffs and brooches have been completed.
You are seeing: Hand dyed cotton fabric with layers of screen printed ‘Bees in Flowers’ design, wrist cuffs in various stages of construction, mother of pearl buttons (I have a huge collection), brooches being constructed using my ‘Bee in Flower’ and ‘Eye see You’ designs, top left is a piece of organic cotton and hemp with screen printed stripes and hummingbirds, shibori stitched resist and dyed selvedge strips.
