Whew! What with my daughter moving, several fairs and my husband having his fourth "cardiac event" (makes it sound like something I need to send out invites for) the fall just disappeared! My daughter is moved, her cats are back with her and my husband is on the mend so now I can get back to making things. This flutter of stuff is the beginning of a collaged box for a special order. It is nice to be in the studio again!

Summer is finally coming to a close here in Eastern Washington. I used almost dead sunflower leaves on silk that had been wrapped around a copper pipe to get the greens pictured here. I have time to make some more, just waiting for the copper pipe to work it's magic on the silk.

Since I have been gathering fall leaves I have had a lot of questions as to why I am "raking" public parks and the yards of total strangers with my bare hands. I came up with this little binder to show them. I didn't have a lot of prints I was willing to part with for this purpose so I will throw in some process shots and maybe even some paper for me to jot notes on. The front cover is an eco print on paper - lace leaf maple with alum as the mordant.
