I wasn’t going to apologize for being gone so long…(AGAIN) But…I’m sorry. I haven’t had time to blog lately. Here’s what I was working on yesterday. Sorry it’s blurry. It’s from my cell phone. This is the beginnings of our fabric garden. The flowers are a variety of hand dyed and commercial fabric that have been cut into small petal-like shapes, gathered at the bottom and sewn together. That lovely piece on the ground is our “moss”. It’s a cloqué piece using wool, silk and Tencel. It has been washed, causing the wool to felt and shrink while the silk and Tencel do not shrink causing these sections to bubble. 🙂 I think I’ll probably end up keeping it as a scarf after it’s done being moss in the garden. I LOVE it.
I don’t have a picture of this, but I also did some low water immersion dyeing on 4 yards of silk cotton batiste to match the orange flowers in this picture. It came out beautifully. One of the girls working on the project with me dyed 4 yards of silk organza in a dark green to be used for Spanish Moss that we will be putting in the tree. It’s coming together! It’s due in two weeks. I’ll be sure to take many pictures of it. Hopefully I’ll have a chance to post them sometime soon after it’s finished.
