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.

Discoveries and Musings On The Creative Path
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!
