overcast

the weather was stormy yesterday.  it was a rare treat during this dry summer.  the world beyond our windows was humid and hushed in the breaks between downpours.

i often create by the quick-n-dirty approach right now.  for me, this means using what is already here and skimming on being rudimentary in process.

a remnant gray skirt, embroidery hoops, permanent ink and stamps were my tools. my product is a simple scarf, printed intentionally rough and aged.

before slipping into sleep the night before last, what kept coming back to my mind was, “for never was a story of more woe/than this of juliet and her romeo.”  what a blissful set of lines.  shakespeare’s work is so brilliant.

maybe i will add some tiny beads to the edges.  but likely it will stay just as it is to be worn on days when i’d prefer not to blend into the background.

it’s so good when making works out.
