What I have Been Up To
Ok...here you are! I have been having fun dyeing and painting. I found a bolt of sateen (22 yards) from Dharma Trading that I forgot I had in my armoire. So, I have dyed some today and will do more the next day we have nice weather. I will also paint some of it with Pebeo Setacolor paints. I need to get the fabric done to take to QSDS in Columbus with me when I leave June 19th. Since it's going to rain the next couple of days I will get my patterns drawn out using transparencies and my overhead projector in the basement. I pin up newsprint (sometimes several pieces taped together) and trace it out. Then I take it to BC Reprographics in Battle Creek, MI and they make full size copies for me. I usually make 6 copies because I am going to be cutting up some for templates. The wall hanging for the Cheff Therapeutic Riding Center is going to be quite large and I haven't quite decided exactly what I am going to do so I am going to start out with a smaller version first and play around with it (the finished piece is to be about 5' x 3'). The other piece I am working on is a picture of an heirloom rose. This will be done in silk. The silk will be dyed Monday or Tuesday along with the rest of the sateen.

Oh, and I am STILL painting my house...but this has to wait for yucky weather.....

    I really missed it...I should have taken photos of my yard filled with 2'x4' sheets of melmine covered with dyed fabric, drying. What fun to see everything on the clothes line...I don't even have a clothes line...California yards are too small...we would get hung up on it all the time!

    Great Fabrics!!

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
