Paisley scarf with fringe
Working on my paisley designs, I refined one down to one for block printing. I had carved one in the largest size, then found that as I went smaller, I had to slightly change the design because it became progressively harder to carve detail as I went smaller. So the three that I ended up with, I was happy with, and printed a silk scarf in three different colours, blue, emerald, violet. I also blended them at the end as emerald/blue and violet/blue for a few printings. Then I wanted something equally delicate as fringing, so I used up all my silk embroidery floss in blues, greens and purples. I'm very happy with it, the colours are my comfort zone and I really enjoyed the printing, the designs came out so well.
