Slow down, slow down.

I've come to a halt the past couple of days…

I have a torn retina. Having had it once before I think it's going to be OK, but I'm taking it easy for a little while.

But in saying that … I did just dye some fabric for a project a short time ago.

I'll explain,

My next video is about the museums I visit and the wonderful textiles I see on display however… what inspiration is spurred by a visit to these amazing places?

This quilt happened out of such a visit.

Actually the images around the border came from images I saw on a piece of tanned hide in the denver Museum.

Could I create similar images in fabric?….. YES I did.

This one was from a visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum and this quilt is taken from a 13th century French stained glass window.

Could I create a stained glass window in fabric?…. YEP I did.

And there are quite a few more….



Which leads to this quilt. Textiles are not my only passion…. I really enjoy photographing statues.

I love the way the light plays on the man made features. I'm intrigued by the way the sculptor has captured the essence of the person.

Can this image be re-created in fabric….?

I think so.

Following the technique with Woven Watercolors… I captured this photo.

I changed it  into a water color on the computer.

And like my Mexican Door Quilt I will use printed fabric as a background and the shading will be done with dyed muslin.


Shown in this photo above is the fabric I'm going to use, and the watercolor print of my photo.

It will be A4 size.


The dyed Muslin (Cheesecloth).  OOOH, but wouldn't this be a wonderful base for a quilt instead of cutting it up?

  1. What have you done to yourself? I think you might have to stop for a while and meditate. A torn retina is serious. Take care Pammy.

    Take care of yourself, Pam. A torn retina is cause for concern and taking it easy for sure. And this is your second one? Same eye or the other one? Best wishes for a full recovery.
