Today I have made up another batch of dyes and I feel as if maybe this is the start of some fabric work again. I really haven't done much in quite a few months. I'm still working on the Quilting and Patchwork class offered by the Kemshalls on their Design Matters site (it's a great course). So far we've been working with paper and paint so this is my first go at fabric pieces in a while. I'm trying to settle on a colour palette....such a hard job because I love all colours, pastel colours to jewel colours. And who can forget the drama of black and white??!! What a decision. I'm still floundering about trying to decide. More dyeing tomorrow to see if I can come closer to a satisfactory solution!!
I bought Ann Johnston's new DVD on dyeing fabric (available on her website). It is SO inspirational. I have taken a few classes with her and she is a wonderful and wonderfully generous instructor. And her DVD is also exceptional.
I feel as if I'm wandering here. I'm going to wander off and press my rinsed out fabrics.
I'll be back. In the meantime, check out these links.....
