'Repotting'

Dark blue silk 'hair'
I've moved my studio and dug out the screen print equipment I didn't use for ages. All the substances and recipes to make the printing dyes were like waiting to be retrieved.

Made some prints on silk for small 3-D work ... and now my work space looks like at a hairdresser's. Layers of fine silk organza are reduced in matter. It's like sculpting a thin substance.

Thinning out seems to be the motto of the moment: cutting threads out of printed cloth - and taking dead wood out of trees.
Oh, it's a treat to be able again to work in the garden and to climb trees!
