They finished tiling everything including the portion of the floor that extends into our foyer, so we are in fact a house divided tonight: in order to get to the bedroom wing, we must go outside and cross the pool patio. But, as my neighbor Debbie said: "it's for one night."
I had some fabulous studio time this afternoon! It was a lovely, sunny day, with temps in the low 70s, and I was able to get a lot of discharging and dyeing done. Here is a scarf that I've been playing with for about a week now:
You may remember it from this post.........look carefully! It has been discharged, overdyed and discharged once more. I LOVE IT, no ifs, ands, or buts about it!!!
The t-shirt below was one that I had spent a good bit of time last Fall gathering up with basting stitches and then discharging. It looked pretty plain to me, so I came back in today with some discharge paste and really garbaged it up:
The interesting thing to me is how differently various discharges affect the fabric. I think I first discharged this shirt with dishwasher gel, which turned it a brownish tan, and now I have used Thiox, which has turned it more creamy. I've also used Thiox with turquoise dye added to it, which has made it a bluish cream color, adding a whole new dimension!
This last pic is of a silk camisole that I dyed a couple of years ago. At the time, I thought it was lovely, but lately I just shove it back farther and farther into my closet. So, I dragged it out the other day, thinking it was a likely discharge candidate. I've added some ferns and swirls to it:
I think I may overdye it......what do you think?
Hope you've had a glorious day too!
