A silkscreen I made in a college course on textile design. The assignment was: create a design with 2 colors that overlapped in places making a third color.  We had to come up with our own lettering style. The title is Enigma. Not sure how I came up with that. It was a long time ago.I still like the word.


 I have all the pieces from the original layout.


             This past year in my effort to use up what I had in the studio I decided to start                              using the last of the fabric.

Made a cushion for my studio chair.

Complete with zipper.


 Quite a few scraps left to use later. 


More on my upholstery journey later.


  1. If you know how to sew you have a valuable skill. Neat-looking seat cover.

    My "E" Tull song for today:

  2. That's beautiful. Enigma is a wonderful word. My daughter made the mistake of naming her home school (in CA home schools are registered as private schools) Academy of Enigmatic Knowledge, thanks to a terrible ex-boyfriend. She was so embarrassed later to have to fill out forms of where she went to high school! Even the man registering it wondered if that wasn't an oxymoron!


I would love to hear from you. Please give me your feed back or questions about anything you find here.
