i got impatient...

Actually, I read the word bundle someplace and immediately went and opened the bundle that was still wet. It really doesn't seem to make much difference though. I threw the cloth in the dryer and have not washed it since I've decided to re-bundle it. 

will try to get a ring in the center this time


I found an old sketchbook/journal and started flipping through pages. Interesting to see what was on my mind almost 5 years ago.

2007---that sketch titled 'Revealing' might be something I'll work on now
and:

some notes on 'tikkun olam' from 2007. I think I was reading about Kabbalah back then.
Here are some links if you're interested in the subject: tikkun olam (world repair) and the mystic Abraham Abulafia.

And then in another sketchbook which is probably from around 2009, I found this:

I still see some possibilities here.
I always have good intentions when starting a sketchbook but lose interest quickly so most of them have lots of blank pages, but looking back and remembering is interesting and sparks new ideas for me.

looks like you are enjoying the dyeing...so good that you still have your journals to look back on. chicago got a record rain two summers ago and most of my early sketchbooks/journals that i kept through school were destroyed. i hold about a 1.5 of standing water in my basement - all gone. amazing how quickly mold sets in during the warm weather. but - good to start from scratch - a new. nice to see where we started and how much we change. take care. funny - today i watched karen ruane's video on one of her sketchbooks - i love listening to her and watching her presentations - and then you posted a page on sketchbooks - sketchbook saturday!

I so know that temptation. Have a bundle I keep walking by this evening...keep telling myself wait. :)

I like the markings you got on your dyed fabric and your 'revealing' sketch idea.

I'm always mislaying sketchbooks and finding them again years later. One of these days I will learn to use one!

Finding old notes + sketches reminds one of the fact that all´s going round + round in circles anyways (or is it in moons...;) - + I like your dyeing...

I have many notebooks, I keep losing or rather misplacing them, it will be interesting when I find them all!
Isn't it amazing how our interests change in time and our inspiration sources as well?
