The Good Ones
Yesterday I posted the just ok snow dyes I got this weekend. Today you get to see the three pieces that I thought were a cut above the others.
This piece was on top of fire red dyed snow, with snow and ecru dye on top. It looked like it was going to have a lot of white showing on it, so I dumped more ecru on it after the snow was half melted.
This looks really deserty to me- the greens are a pale sage, and the oranges are a bit less intense than they look- on my monitor, anyway. It has lots of patterning on it. This one was the Kona muslin.
The second Kona muslin is really springy- blue, lilac, and green- without looking muddy at all.
I think this one was in a jar with four fabrics and dye colors- blue, turquoise, yellow, and grape. I think blue was on the bottom, then yellow, then turquoise, and last the grape dye. Whatever it was, I like it.
The last piece is pima cotton, that was in a jar with cerulean blue, turquoise, and grape. I see a cloudy sky, or a stormy sea.
Shannon and I drove to Ikea this afternoon- she got a comforter and fabric to make a duvet, I got a couple storage items for the studio. I keep looking to see if there are ways to make the space more functional that are still within a relatively small budget. I can dream, can't I??
