Here is a Dharma silk cami that I dyed last week, using a couple of layers of wax and color:
These camis are terrific for sleepwear and I do wear them until they literally cannot be worn another night. They are so soft, and it seems that they are warm in the winter (in Georgia and under a down comforter) and then they are cool in the summer under our little cotton matelaise.
This is "Barker's Bungalow"
I made it for the Breaking Traditions Art Quilt Exhibit, which Lynn Krawczyk sponsors every year. This year the proceeds go to Bernie Berlin's "A Place to Bark", a non-profit organization that finds loving homes for abused and orphaned dogs and cats. You can read more about Bernie's work here.

This is a silk scarf that I have made for a redheaded friend of mine who has been so kind to lend books to me over the past several years
here's a detail shot:
And do you remember this fabric that I painted a month or so ago using Melly Testa's technique?
It is a very light and yummy silk/cotton blend which I have sewn up into a nice light summertime top. I put rolled hems on the bottom and sleeve edges, and I am looking forward to wearing it for another month or two.
Lastly, here are two of C's recycled t-shirts, which I have dyed and intend to make into a skirt and top. You need to hold me to this!
Hope your days have been bizzy and funn!!!
