Detailed silk painting designs.
My new fabrics were delivered. I really like the colors, and they are available to order here Angelia*A. You can see some linen and hand dyed fabrics this weekend at the Tidewater Quilt Guild show in Chesapeake. It has been a busy spring and many more things coming up, working on many new pattern and fabric designs.
It has been a learning fall for me. I am trying to convert my hand drawn design ideas to the computer on Adobe Illustrator. In my past career I did a lot of Autocad technical work, it is one thing to make straight lines and measurements and all that using a computer and mouse, it is so tricky for me to make my hand drawings look the way I want on the computer. The boys did buy me a Wacom tablet that lets you draw directly on the screen. I am finally feeling a little more comfortable using it. It is still not quite the same, but if I want to have my designs printed on fabric,in large quantities, I will continue on, it is never too late to learn something new, anyway.
Seeing spots-painting dots, many silk scarf orders around here, this design has been a favorite this this spring/summer. I can see the end coming with this last 5 months of orders. Looking forward to new ideas and designs and I hope to have some samples and orders available for family and friends this summer.
