I have been running around a lot for the last two months solid, so it is nice to finally be at home without having somewhere to be this weekend. I have been catching up on some cleaning and doing some cooking, for a change of pace, as well as anxiously looking forward to creating some of my own work again.
But in between the cooking and cleaning, under the pretext of “I need to use up this dye”, I have been creating some cloth. It is time to clean up the patio workspace and using up the dye is a way of rewarding myself for it. This is two fat quarters in coordinating shibori patterns.
This one I poured several colors on. The pattern was made by clamping it with small spring clamps that are two inches long. I was totally surprised and delighted with how the patterning came out on it. It was a paint rag and I think it has some metallic paint on it too. I will be making more of this pattern.
