The snow has almost gone...not fair!!!!!
Today is "ironing and show" day......so here goes. This is my large silk piece l wrapped with banana skins and then dyed in red onion skins...l am so in love with it. This is what it looked like before l unwrapped it!I left it foe weeks..so proud of myself!Ha!
This is what it looks like now after being washed and ironed..love it.This image has l think a figure in it..can you see it?
Here is the whole piece being ironed. Have not decided what l am going to do with it yet but l think l may use it as a whole piece.
I see a figures and maybe a cat in this....what do you see? Ha!
This was a shawl l originally dyed with Eucaylptus but was not happy with it..so l re-dyed it using blueberries. This is what it looked like then.....! Very dark and purple and when l unwrapped it, was not sure l liked it at all.
I was not sure l liked this when l unwrapped the bundle and left it to dry. It was a very dark purple in colour and looked really un-naural. Then after leaving it to rest for a week, decided to wash it agin and was going to then re-dye it. I had quite a surprise when l started to rinse it, loads of colour came out. I though all the unset colour had come out the first time. But this time the colour that was left was just what l had hoped for. I am happy! just the sewing to do now.
