All of the above pieces resulted from several sessions of dyeing, overdyeing, discharging, and then finally screenprinting. I am very pleased with my results and can't wait to make something out of them.
I love sleeping in these little silk camisoles that Dharma often offers up for sale. They are so comfy. So I decided to dye up just one more to add to my collection. Do you think they'd sell on my web site?
Here is a silk charmeuse scarf that I attempted a few complex cloth techniques on. The background fabric is really a lot darker than it appears here - more of an olive/khaki color. The character is Chinese red, not the fucshia that appears below.
We are hosting our church Foyers group here tomorrow night, so I've gotten busy making some lamb curry, which is one of my favorite dishes. Sorry about this blurred photo, but here's the beginning of the curry......can't you just smell the garlic, onions, celery and peppers sauteeing?
I've added the apples, which I find to be such a pleasant surprise when you come across them in your curry!
And here's the finished product with the lamb and plumped-up raisins visible:
I'll let the flavors in my concoction meld for 24 hours then thicken it up a bit and serve it over some yummy jasmine brown rice. MMMMMMMM!
