flashbacking

"Healer" 22"x'22"  2003



I was tinkering with my laptop this morning and some of the newer versions of programs I have been forced into in the move to Windows 7 when I stumbled across a bunch of files from back in the day.


When I first started learning HTML for the purpose of building and maintaining my own website I didn't pay a lot of attention to organizing the files properly. Files are named cryptically and are scattered all over the place. 


this B&W image caught and soothed my over stimulated eye this morning.

Both built on common cotton bandanas, this is a companion piece to "Parking Magik" which was created for a black and white challenge and is part of the Del Thomas Contemporary Quilt Collection . Once upon a time I was enthralled by commercial cotton prints and beading with no notions of dyeing fabric.

You've just confirmed what I was trying to decide (about my next quilt project) this very morning! Looking at fabrics, different combinations, color choices --- they all began to run together after awhile...so I put them away. One of my choices was a stack of black and white prints and one wild splash of color...and your post has my eyes wide with anticipation at the first cuts/stitches of the new quilt I'll be working on. Thank you for such perfect timing!

Love it. If you can do back and white you can do anything.
