This lovely cotton/ linen piece took a great deal of time.

  1. First, I designed a repeat pattern.  A fairly lengthy process, but fun!
  2. Transfered the drawing design  to Lino.  Cut with speedball Lino cutter.
  3. Hand stamped small Lino leaves and branches in greens.
  4. Hand stamped large Lino on top of the leaves.  After a few hand rubbing efforts, the prints were too light, so I finally used a beautiful old printmaking press.
  5. I think  the fabric needed about 40 individual passes through the press.  Many hours!
  6. I’m not sure what it will become….maybe an apron or skirt or a lap quilt.
