Carving and Dyeing....

Results of today’s dye pot:

A small batch of Brown Onion Skin and Dark Red Rose Petals with iron added after taking out the silk. These will blend nicely with some others I have dyed......... The small square cloth at bottom left is a hand stitched serviette. I love recycling old household textiles!



I carved a couple of stamps- a wee bird and a goldfish that has been drawn for some time! Oh, and a little gothic window…….












I also printed the gothic window onto fabric but forgot to take a photo...
I've had a fun studio day and managed to have an enjoyable lunch and chat at friend's.
Back to work tomorrow......
Hope to be back soon....

I like each and every photo...so full of potential...I can just feel the excitement of returning to a studio day with all these treasures!

The stamps look really great, very effective. I particularly like the fish. Fabulous dye colours, too.

Thanks Penny, BSD and Karen for your comments... I really do think I'm addicted to dyeing fabric! I wonder if I'll ever get to use it all?
The little stamps were such fun to carve and I hope to use them on fabric too....

Such talent and fund of ideas! I love seeing your sketches and work processes.

Thanks for dropping by Linturn... I too love seeing others' processes and Works in Progress. I find it so inspirational to see where someone's thoughts and extrapolations take them!
