It's been a cool, rainy, dreary day here--
so I stayed busy inside. I think I'm liking this list thing- it helped keep me on track, and it feels good to check off stuff as it's completed. All the housework is done, laundry done, and I washed out the yard of fabric I dyed yesterday. I worked on my packing list for Colorado, and got a lot of the packing done. That means I will have most of tomorrow to finish my piece for IT!
I really like what came out of the dyepot, although it is very different from the red/green piece. There the two colors stayed separate, there's no brown on it. Not the case with this one--
I can see this in a Southwest inspired quilt. The brown is a warm, earthy toned, and the turquoise just glows against it. Look at some of the patterning--
I may have to try this on some pimatex, and see how that affects the colors.
Thought I'd share some photos from the Laura Cater-Woods workshop I was at Monday and Tuesday. It was at the Pioneer Craft House in Salt Lake, a venue familiar to many USDG members, but I'd never been there. They are in the process of renovation, but were very helpful in making the workshop a success. Here it is from the outside--
And here we are in the room, some of us working with our sewing machines, others not. It was a lovely, relaxing workshop, and I'd highly recommend Laura to anyone- at least anyone who likes process oriented workshops rather than project oriented.
Kind of interesting working in a room with all those historical artifacts.
It's getting late, I'm heading upstairs. Shouldn't have too much on the list for tomorrow!
