There has been a lot of fabric swapping going on around here. As well as the kids swap, there was the handprinted swap that Leslie organised last year. And then following on from that Di organised a second round swap. For the second swap most of us used grey or colours that complemented it, so Alison devised the Greyness Swap, where all the fabric would be printed in grey tones, except for a couple of pieces in a highlight colour.
Last week was grey and wet here, so it was easy to think of what to screenprint. It felt good to get my screenprinting supplies out again - I did a course at the beginning of 2008 but haven't printed much since then. I should do more, it's lots of fun, and I am spoilt to have Peter Leis not far away for supplies and advice.
The pieces I've been sent back so far are absolutely beautiful, and I can't wait to see what the postman brings next.
