I had done almost all of them, completing the hand dyeing of the fabric, the thermofax screens were printed, the printing blocks were made from my photographs of fungi and printed, and image transfer applied. I stalled at this stage, realising that I should have used transfer papers for dark fabrics. Then the family all wanted to come for Christmas entailing everything being put away. I negotiated a week's grace and managed to complete them yesterday and upload to the Contemporary Quilt site this afternoon..Whew! In the end I decided that the rather transparent image transfer effect was appropriate for the ephemeral nature of fungi.
