This is the latest wavy silk yardage that I'm working with
And here's how the Sulky Solvy project is progressing
I think that I will have a semi finished project to show you tomorrow....stay tuned! Can you tell what it will become????
I met with my clients/friends this afternoon and we discussed more logistics of the aforementioned commissioned silk wallhanging. We are all excited about it, and we have now determined its finished dimensions, by first choosing the hanging device and then hanging a piece of butcher paper in the space where the wall hanging will reside. We first figured out the width we/they wanted and then we worked out the finished length. I've never been so focused on details before, and this is a good discipline for me to adopt. We've also finalized the kind of silk they want, so now I can order the appropriate yardage and begin dyeing. WooHoo: the fun begins here!!!!
Late this afternoon I finally finished the dye samples from the first half of my Procion dye inventory. YIKES!!! What a riot of color
This process has already been helpful in determining the correct dye to apply to the third layer of Arashi Shibori on a new scarf. I'll try to remember to get a picture of it for you tomorrow. Did you notice the absence of blue here? I have so many blue dyes, that they will take up almost the entire second dyeing session.
And I've decided to make a few of these little fru-frus from some silk snippets.
Aren't they cute! I think they'll make nice little accessories for the coming summer, and I'll add them to my little space At The Collective. What would you be willing to pay for a beaded silk accessory like this? I was thinking somewhere between $10-$15. Is that a good price or should I go a bit higher?
It was great to hear from a new voice yesterday! Thanks to all of you for leaving such wonderful comments and compliments about my dear Mom, but double thanks to Caroline for leaving her first comment! Caroline, I hope you were able to make it to and from Asheville: such a great small city! We love it there!!! Hope you'll leave more comments!
Hope you've had a great day too!
