I was never happy with the shade of blue (too light) nor the large percentage of yellow. I decided to scrunch and overdye them in a deeper shade of blue.
Here they are
now I will serge the edges and use them!
I have been playing with a large piece of habotai for a week or so now, just rolling it and throwing it into another dye bath every few days. It started its journey in yellow, then red, and finally blue:
I wanted more and different, so I rolled it again and dipped it into a Thiox bath
I love doing Thiox baths....talk about immediate gratification! Here's how it looked unfurled
Interesting results, but not what I wanted, so time for another pipe rolling and bath
I think I may finally be satisfied.........time will tell!
We got these two squash in our market basket yesterday
the one in the foreground is a Long Island Cheese Winter Squash and the other is a Tromboncino. Any ideas on how to prepare either or both of them?
And one last photo of my beloved studio companion, Barker
There was a hint of Fall in the air yesterday, so I had all of the studio doors open and he was able to be outside while I worked.......we both enjoyed it tremendously.
Have a great day!
