Full Circle

That would be where I am with respect to the March TIF challenge. This has been the hardest concept for me thus far, a surprise. And, there is no way I can use that winter palette with spring peeking around the corner here. So I am back to my original idea of macro shots of flowers, one of my favorite things to do with my camera. I'm feeling the time crunch, and not particularly inspired otherwise.

I am combining it with things learned at our Wasatch Art Quilters meeting last week. We worked at enhancing photos printed on fabric with Tsukineko inks. I'll do that, then add thread work. Here's the two fabric printouts, before I do anything to them--

I think I will make a small piece with all three yellow flowers, joined with pieced borders and sashes. The leaf picture is one I took in Florida last summer. I played with the colors in the filter gallery.

Right now Shannon and I are making breakfast burritos for the coming week. Our evening schedule has gotten crazier, with her starting night classes. So we need to have food that anyone can grab and go, since that seems to be how we are eating lately. Then I will head to the studio and start the inking.

I also got some Dye-na-Flow in brown and black, to color the edges of my batting tree. Those two projects should keep me busy the rest of the day!
