I print again

This is me at the end of a long day of printing yesterday. You can see the relief on my face that I’d managed to print 20ms without major incident. I have to say, that being new to this game I find 20ms of pristine white linen makes me a little nervous. The thought of ruining that beautiful fabric with a blotchy print or careless blob or smear from grubby fingers kept my adrenaline running all day, and I was in need of a stiff drink at the end of it all.

I owe thanks to Shelly at Orange Owl Textiles who let me christen the virgin table at her studio! Shelly was an invaluable help to me, the fool who thought I could print 20ms myself. How wrong I was!  www.orangeowltextiles.com

My lack of posting has been the result of several weeks of organising. Piping, zips, fabric, heat setting, sewing, all the work that has to be done before you get to the fun bit, and actually get to print something.

My next trick will be to turn them into cushions.
