new pattern: costumed kitties

Working with T.J. Maxx and Marshalls (or Winners for Canadians) often means I find myself knee deep in a holiday whose season is nowhere in sight.  About a month ago I was illustrating Christmas towel embroideries and plotting out quilting stitches for tree skirts, but this week it's Halloween prints for kids bedding.  I was given some free reign with this project and had some fun coming up with cute costumes for my frolicking black cats.  Festively fabulous wardrobes have no seasonal expiration date in my book :)

daily doodles

I have many sketchbooks of various shapes and sizes at my disposal, and yet, nearly every random scrap of paper that crosses my path seems to end up with my scribbles on it in one form or another.  I dont even realize Im making the marks most of the time, but I consistently fish receipts with faces, gum wrappers with loopy lettering, and business cards with pattern plans from the depths of my purses and jacket pockets.  Recently, the past use space in the front of my day planner has been a favorite found spot for sketching.  Perhaps I have some strange compulsion to fill blank space with bright color?... all I know is it would be a shame to waste perfectly good daily doodling space :)

pattern play: stamped stuff

The (partial)fruits of a fabric printing class I've been taking over at DeCordova Museum.  Recently we worked with stamping methods, which I thoroughly enjoyed, because I've always had a thing for stamps.  I love the physicality of carving the shapes, the messiness of the ink, and the patterning possibilities directly at my fingertips (Im even beginning to love picking linoleum/rubber shavings out of my carpet).
