So, I'll show you a few pieces that I completed today and then I'll show you what the guys completed today.
The above piece is the long sleeved tee that I had blogged about the other day. I've added some more discharging with turquoise dye added to the discharge paste, I've stamped it, and then I sort of haphazardly folded it vertically and sprayed it with turquoise dye. I am really pleased with the outcome, and hope to get you a better picture sometime during this lifetime!
This next piece is a child's tee that I first did a bit of low immersion dyeing on, then discharged the lines and some insect stampings. I had thought that that would be enough!
However I decided it needed more, so I did some printing with some Nandina leaves off of a plant just outside of my studio door. I love the effect! Here are a couple of closeups:
The following is the old red tank top that I had discharged several months ago, then I screened/discharged the lines down the front. I came back in the other evening and sprayed some blue polka dotted circles on it.
This next piece is a beloved white workout tank that I have worn until it is a virtual rag! I've been overdyeing and discharging on it for a few months now. Unfortunately the other afternoon I decided it needed to have those cutesy little bees discharge/stamped across the front in a clear diagonal.....what was I thinking????
Other than the bee stamps, I thought it was pretty cool!
Below is a little girls' romper that I dyed yellow, soy wax batiked, dyed blue, then sprayed with some turquoise:
This one is not as ugly as it appears here, but it needs one more thing....what would you do next???
And here's what they did today:
This picture faces the guest room, looking from the dining room door. The openings, going from right to left are for the fridge, the gas range and hood, and the wall oven. There will be reeded glass on the open cabinet fronts and my beloved granite on the backsplash. Molly, is this at all like you envisioned it to be?? Remember that day that we planned it all out???
The pic below faces the diningroom, with the wall knocked down. I can now see that there are a couple of electrical outlets that need to be moved, but all in all, I am so pleased with the way things are going!
Here is the island, looking towards the diningroom:
The dishwasher will be in that gaping hole, and then the double sink, and then the trash and recycling, yada, yada, yada. There will be granite over those liitle backsplash cubbyholes! I placed the dishwasher where I did so that there would be a countertop opposite the fridge, and also the dishwasher would not be opening into the wall oven. There are so many things to consider in a kitchen!!!
So, I promise, this is the last blog for the day!!!
