i love the tendrils
first smocked section, went into the blue bath
love the blue!
like fancy ruffles. but temporary.
oh man oh man ready for the dyebath almost!
I went to school and worked on my giant smocked piece that you've been looking at for years now. Sorry! I finished it today, so you'll only see it once more. I'm pretty happy with it, I think. Now quite as much contrast as I was hoping for, but I haven't seen it dry yet. Our next project in Shibori has these requirements: 1. 1-2 yards of fabric, 2. has to involve discharge. It can be pieced from many fabrics, we can dye the fabric as well as long there is also discharge. We can use any of the techniques we've learned so far. I'm thinking about doing a couple different pieces from the same fabric. Hmmm... We'll see. You'll see :)
I am so happy that I don't have to get up at 4:30am tomorrow. Sick of opening!
I can not type anymore, my hands will freeze up. I was informed today that I will become like an old woman and be able to feel pressure differences in the weather soon. I wonder if the stiffness in my hands this weekend and today is from the super cold we've had? I don't know.
When you go to Starbucks, what do you get? Or to the coffee shop if you don't get to Sbux. Just curious :) I'll start: grande (usually in my own travel mug) 140 degree, no water chai. I know, but it will burn my mouth!!
