#6

New items from last week::


More round coasters. This time in shades of blue.


Pictured above: evidence that I don't have any self control. The fabric was barely out of the washing machine when I decided that I MUST make more so that I can make something with it.

Swirl design in a different colorway and, actually a different way of working. Rather than dye the base fabric a color, draw on the swirls and then overdye in another color, I dyed the fabric in a medium value color(turquoise), drew the design and then discharged the fabric. This turquoise tends to bleach practically white. I then overdyed into a wonderful golden yellow.


The second in the series.

New for this week:: New Feature:: Pictures from Everyday Life:


Keeping track of the rows.


One-eyed Abi.

Beautiful! I love the both colourways for the swirl design. I can see why you could barely wait for the fabric to dry before stitching it up. It's gorgeous!
So much inspiration from your talented hands.
