It started with tickets to Jazz at Lincoln Center , a happy couple, and some great lighting.
The show was amazing.
My weekend continued with a request by my Man to change my cellphone lock screen to this image of David Bowie. And I couldn’t agree more. I remain ever grateful to have walked the earth during David Bowie’s lifetime. When he died, all of them died.
Long live the many lives, and personal recreations of David Bowie.
I am working on my Threads of Resistance piece. It speaks to women and ‘the female body’, using recent news headlines to highlight matters of gender oppression. Decorative elements abound, of course.
This is a work in progress, I will update the blog about it as I progress it. It will measure 20″ square and will have a knife edge finish. It will have machine quilting, and (I hope) embroidered elements. I haven’t made a piece in this manner for a very long time. This is fun!
At the same time, I am printing up a storm with Melly Marks Kits.
Sunday, I gathered as many printed items that could be steamed together. By the end of this week, I will have processed a new batch of color triangle swatches, a Speed Print session related to all the Melly Marks repeats, and more. I love steaming, because it means lots of printed cloth, ready to use!!
So? How about you? What were you up to this weekend?

What a gorgeous place to listen to music. I am in love with your Resistance piece just from the bits I’ve seen. I think of your steamer as a Sesame Street character – more fabric, please! Have a fabulous week!
I love your Resistance piece also. I’m looking forward to seeing your progress on it. I’m trying to get a piece done also by the May 1 deadline. I’m using a manipulated photo of Statue of Liberty printed on fabric and then some thread painting and quilting. What a wonderful exhibit this will be…Joan
