Red Friday

This is the jacket that has gotten a lot of attention at our church art show/festival.
It is rayon and has two little ties in the front. I've done a low immersion dye job on it and then painted in the gold gingko leaves.

Last night, I finished one in a "plummy" sort of color...quite mottled, in a good way! Rather than the gingko leaves, I painted on some Chinese characters in black and stamped some other interesting Celtic motifs. I'm pleased with the way it turned out. Hope to get a pic of it later today.

Here's a closeup of the gingko leaves. I think that is my favorite leaf!

Three scarves that I dyed earlier this week: The one on the right came free from Thai Silk. I love the little pattern in the silk. It also has a very thin golden thread running through the weave, but I don't think it shows up in the photo.

A stone washed crepe de chine scarf that I batiked and dyed a myriad of colors:

This is another stone washed crepe de chine scarf that I waxed and dyed. It has an all-over fish motif in the middle, and a bit of a potato masher on the border. It looks much nicer in person, trust me on that.

And last but certainly not least, a shot of our lake. Now you can catch a glimpse of the homes across the way. See the duckies on our shoreline? There is one grebe in amongst them. It seems that each winter we have one solitary grebe...or are there lots but they are simply solitary? I don't know, but I do know that when the grebes and the sweet little Buffleheads return, winter is not far behind. The leaves are really falling now, but those that remain are lovely. C and I are taking Barker up into the mountains today to buy apples and take a hike. He will love it....and so will we!!!

Thanks for the eye candy. Oh, those limey greens!! I love the ginkos too, but up here I am loving the aspen leaves.
