I can't seem to get enough of Shibori, so I hope you're not growing tired of seeing the results of my playtime. Yesterday afternoon I thought I'd go out to the dye studio for 'just a little while' and wrap up a few silk scarves that I'd put a layer of dye on last weekend. Well, that little while ended up being about four hours. Once I got the scarves wrapped, I spotted some lengths of cotton that could use some wrapping, so I felt compelled. And then of course, I couldn't just leave them to dye for another day, so I mixed up the dye pot, stuck them in and could barely wait for the results.
I'm bored with photographing my scarves on my model. Tell me what you think: do you like them better this way, or on the model?
C and I have just completed listening to "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" by Stieg Larsson, a Swedish writer. Apparently when it was first released in Sweden it was titled "Men Who Hate Women". I'm not sure why the title was changed for its release here in the States. I had a love-hate relationship with this book, but found it addicting, and was sad to learn that Larsson, the author, has passed away, but there is a sequel to the book! I've also just finished reading "Living Buddha, Living Christ" by Thich Nhat Hanh, and I'm almost through with "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett, a marvelous page-turner. What are you reading? Don't be shy, please speak up! We saw "A Serious Man", the new Coen brothers movie, the other day........it is unlike any other they have done, and that is all I'm saying at this point!
We're enjoying more lovely weather with sunny skies and afternoon temps climbing into the 60s.
Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.
