"Virtual Seminole"

Taking refuge in my studio from the (endless) snooker on TV, I started playing around with Photoshop, cropping, copying and pasting my pictures of my monoprinted fabrics to make a patchwork block, which I then turned and cropped again, into several different strips.  I turned each alternate strip upside down and copied and pasted it all.  A very easy way of doing virtual patchwork (easier to do than to explain).  An enjoyable evening, livened by Scarlatti playing in the background.
