This was how my Texas Star Hibiscus looked
just before going into my steamer on August 5th.
This was how it looked after steaming:
I checked it this afternoon,
and this is how it looks now:
According to the 'Three Week Rule',
this bundle is scheduled to be unfurled on August 26th.
We will be out of town then.
Do I open it before we leave,
or do I wait until we return home?????
Such a dilemma!
what would you do????????
I opened several bundles yesterday,
as Charlie was here over the weekend,
and what almost two-year-old is interested in unfurling eco-dye works,
according to their schedule?
I was really pleased with this one:
This is the outer end of a silk scarf eco-dyed with
Rex Begonia leaves and onion skins.
The begonia leaves gave a great crunch
and spurted out some lovely purple liquid
when they were rolled around my pipe,
so I had high hopes that I'd get some color.
I was not disappointed.
I wrapped the bundle with some silk habotai ribbon,
hence the white resist lines.
And this is the other end of the bundle:
White oak leaves were rolled at this end,
you can see their shape in the lovely pink areas.
I was very pleased with this piece.
