This came in the mail last week….

…along with this…

My five page spread is page 62-66…it’s an awesome issue because there are so many wonderful fiber artists’ work in here…eye candy!

Oops…I’d better say…this issue is on the stands on December 1.





Indigo!

14 11 2012

A couple of weeks ago I had a play day with Lynda of Bloom, Bake, Create fame. We had been planning for some time to try out indigo dyeing.  I finally had a day free!  Here are my cotton cloth prints.

I also tried three kinds of silk scarves in the vat but did not leave them in long enough. I attempted to re-dye them the next day in the vat, but it had oxidized too much. I then over-dyed them with a procion dye which actually turned out similar to the indigo dyeing.

On the left, silk chiffon (yummm!), then a silk crepe, and a silk habatoi.

A productive day!
