adventures in block printing!

Yesterday was a crafty day. I spent hours and hours carving away at this block print and immediately had to share it with my family and now you:

july 2010 003

I’m so proud. I know, I’m probably not supposed to admit it, but damn it… I am! Cause it was hard work people! Hard work and I didn’t mess it up, even after a few hours of carving and getting impatient towards the end. It looks easy but it wasn’t and I’m darn tooting impressed with me!

Below my print, you can see some of the one my friend did. It’s bad form of me not to show all her hard work and first efforts but that’s because I don’t want to share the spotlight right now. Later, when we put them on stuff you can see her lovely work. But not now. Because now I want you to admire my hard work! That’s right (can I get more vain?)! 

Ok, that’s it for today!


  1. I'm so happy your block print turned out after the painstaking hours and elbow pain. YAY! I'm still nursing the cut on my finger! Man, block printing can be dangerous, especially when you get impatient.
    I had a great time and can't wait until we start to make our own fabric and goodies.
    Thanks for teaching me a new craft.
    love ya

  2. Ok I don't know anything about block printing but it goes on fabric too?!?! I see a world of possibilities with that! In terms of me and what I could do with something you've block printed I mean. You totally deserve the spotlight and it looks amazing but I'm also a little self-centered so I think about me more! No but seriously, congrats! You totally deserve to toot your own horn!

  3. thanks ladies. and viv, the possibilities related to block printing and your projects... infinite. we should talk! another exciting adventure. woo hoo!

  4. I wish I lived closer to you!!! My friend Meehae and I are starting to do printing on fabric and applique soon! So fun! :-)

  5. Boo for living far away. I keep trying to get you to move here but you keep resisting... grrr... see how much fun we could be having if you were here!?
