After all that green work, the fabric stash was looking decidedly bare .... so this week I have started dyeing fabric for the work ahead ........ I say 'started' because I've already made inroads into this batch!!
I dyed about 10 mtrs of cotton poplin, mostly fat quarters but also some half metre and a few metre pieces for larger backgrounds ... I love the surprising combinations that come from Ann Johnston's "color parfait's" (See Anne's book 'Color by Accident' - one of my favorite references on fabric dyeing). I worked with mixes of a number of green and blue dyes for most of the fabrics then added a bit of antique gold and peach!
Just as well I made plenty of greens ... quite a few pieces are just right for the Grevillea piece I have just started work on!!! The next batch of colors is planned as soon as the new PDF fabric arrives!!!
Clearly my recent work says 'green' is high on my list of favorites!!! What does your work say about your favorite color??
Thanks for dropping by ............ CC
