Have you signed up for the Handprinted Fabric Swap? And have you been in a
printing frenzy too? It's been madness here. I can't seem to settle on a design.
The deadline is this coming Monday and I hope I make it in time. Here is a glimpse
of what has been screen-printed and block-printed around here lately...
The first one is actually the very first lino block design I carved way back when.
Revisited in a neon pink (the camera couldn't really capture the neon).

The next two started from an experiment with my brayer, just playing around and seeing
what it could do. I decided to use it as a background for some other old screen print
designs and lino blocks that I found when cleaning up my work room.

And the last one is more experimentation with the octagon block. I'd had some
problems with the circle showing on top of the design so I worked out a way to
print all the circles in place first and then layer the octagon block on top.

So, some printing has happened - a lot of printing - but I'm no closer deciding what to
send to my swap partners. If you're reading this, swap partners, can you tell me
which you'd prefer please?
