Catherine Whall Smith . . . thinks it’s time to move and don’t forget Saturday’s demo by Kate Themel

Time to move to another color palette.  Red, red, and more RED, that color in a variety of prints has dominated my work in my “Transfusion” series for quite awhile.  But as you can see below, there are some new colors emerging.  Beautiful Pat Pauly ( http://piecesandresistance.blogspot.com) and Carol Eaton  (http://carolreatondesigns.blogspot.com) hand dyes as well as commercial prints in golds and greens.  My design wall is now full of fabric ideas.  I’ve added some of my photo images of hay bales, some covered in white plastic and interesting images of a corn crib door and farm equipment.  Time to let that “perk” until I am ready to start creating and stitching the next piece.

  Reminder:  The next “Thread Count” lecture at the Hartford Fine Art and Framing Gallery https://hartfordfineart.com/events/thread-count/ will be Saturday, February 29th, 11 am – 1 pm.  Kate Themel will be demonstrating her sewing machine techniques, using a camera and projector for all to watch as she works.  A not to be missed event.
