Happy New Year
I am concocting a few new things
to add to our home's eclectic decor.
I'm not sure where this is going,
but when I figure it out,
I'll let you know.
My design wall is empty!
Well, it was until I pinned this on there:
The center triangle and the bottom strip of fabric
are both a lovely blue,
but they did not photograph well.
Anyway, I dropped Maggie's quilt off
at the quilter's home yesterday afternoon.
It was such a good feeling to get it off the wall
and on its way.
Now I just have to wait.
It will be about 3 weeks,
as she has two quilts ahead of mine.
This morning, I dyed the blue strip of fabric that you see above.
I decided I wanted an unmottled piece
and so was using Elin Noble's method
of dyeing in the washing machine.
All was going well until I plugged in my iron
and the washer stopped and the lights went out.
I flipped all of the circuit breakers,
but to no avail.
I figured out how to get power to the washer,
so continued the dyeing,
but still have no lights...until our electrician
comes to my aid.
So, no dyeing in the studio for a few days.
That said, the washing machine method of dyeing
You can find that technique (and many more)
in this great book.
Thank you Elin Noble!
Thanks for stopping by.
