I've been dyeing up a storm, but most of it I cannot show you, as some of you may be the recipients of the aforementioned sessions!
This, however, I will reveal:
I am totally in love with this fabric. It is from Thai Silks, and I cannot give you anymore details than that. It does have a bit of lycra in it, and it dyes like a charm! The above piece is one that I was playing with, in hopes of making a top for myself, and I think it will work! If it does, you can be sure that I'll post pics of it right here!!
Here's a scarf that I made with some of the same silk:
The selvedge is very interesting in itself, and takes the dye pretty well. I decided to leave the selvedge on, and then I roll-hemmed the other cut edge with my serger.
Here's the selvedge:

and here are my Snow Drops!
I thought they were supposed to show their adorable little faces in January or February: what happened?
I am pleased to see that they have multiplied over the past year....now I see results of the fish emulsion fertilizer I oh-so-lovingly doused them with last summer!
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
