Blue Hawaii


I was asked to design a silk scarf
for a 70th birthday gift.
The celebration will be held on Maui,
so I thought that a tropical theme would be in order.
I'm calling this piece 'Blue Hawaii'.


I used silk charmeuse, which you as you know
is as soft as butter, and has a lovely sheen.
It also drapes beautifully.


The process included three applications of dye,
with intermediate applications of resist.
I'm pleased with the outcome.


This is my 1201st post!!  WooHoo!!

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a safe and wonderful (Memorial Day - if you're in the States) weekend!

peace
