This is my 1400th blog post!

I spent a lot of time at my sewing machine today.
I was constructing silk cowls
from previously dyed pieces.
I'm particularly fond of this eco-dyed piece.

These are long enough to double loop,
or you can leave them as a single loop,
as shown in the first image.

and here's a detail shot:

The Texas Star Hibiscus is clearly visible.

MMMMM, I love this one!

thanks for stopping by

peace to you!
