Creative Project #22 ~ silk and clay

This week is turning out to be busy, busy, busy!  On Saturday I am participating in something called “Da Market”.  It is put on by the Bahamas National Trust.
There will be farmers there with fresh produce, local food, preserves, arts and crafts.
I will have a tent there for “Friends of Abaco Animals”, and under that tent a small selection of a few of my things.
If you are in Abaco, be sure to come out.  I may have a few surprises 🙂
So this week I have been preparing for Saturday, and found some time today to finish up that scarf I started on Sunday.
Let me tell you….silk is so much fun to sew!!! It keeps running away from you!
In the end I won the battle and got the scarf hemmed!
I am looking forward to making some more of these.
I also had my hands in clay on and off today.  I need a few embellishments for this weekend.
That blue contraption is my slab roller.  I also leave the pieces there to dry into greenware.  The shelf above it my husband hung for me yesterday so I can easily grab tools and glazes.
This week is flying by…..hope it is a good one for all of you 🙂

Creative Project #20 ~ silk scarfs

Today I dove into something that I have not touched in a while….silk painting!
It started because I am still going through the many boxes of *STUFF* that we dug out of the attic and I found some panels I had painted back in 2002! YIKES!
I have also painted hundred’s of silk pillows, so many that I will only do them now on the rare occasion!
So when I found these panels I wanted to get out the silk painting supplies, and I wanted to paint a scarf.  I have been wearing a lot of different scarves this winter and have been thinking of lighter scarves I could wear for the spring.  Silk is perfect!
One problem was that most of my stretcher frames had gone to storage since renovations are starting upstairs tomorrow…..eeekkkk!
So I had to do what I could with what I had!
I am going to have to paint this scarf in sections on a smaller stretcher frame.
Right now this part is drying.
Of course, I was itching to *finish* something, so I took one of my lizard panels and cut the backing off of it.  It was a little too short for a regular scarf but could be used as a cowl.  I added a Jangles button to hold it closed, after I hemmed it, and taaaddaaaa!!
I think this will be the perfect accessory for spring!
See you tomorrow 🙂
