wonder dyeing

these past few days i’ve been doing production dyeing-dyeing for orders. for example –

extra long for the tall girls…

tomorrow i’m doing some wonder dyeing.

yup- that’s a new category i’ll be adding to the sidebar. i do a lot of it here but never knew what to call it. it’s really my favorite thing – just going with what the cloth wants me to. letting colors wash over the silk and speak to each other.  since i have a few retail events coming up i can do a lot of this-no need to stick to “the list”.  plus, it’s a good way to come up with new colors and see what people like (and don’t like!).

also, i have been playing with the needle felting tool on the silk ribbon. it is fun to see here it leads and i like the results.  you might want to try it too… i added two pieces to the shop- i was making them (demonstrating) at the recent show and selling them as i finished each one. these two i didn’t get finished until just the other day-they’re in the shop

also there’s been some interesting things coming out of the indigo vat with some vintage hemp i found in japan… photos soon.
