Greetings! I'm sorry for those of you that were hit once again with this ridiculous winter weather. We were north of the snow and had a sunny day for the trip to the Clinic, sunny today, but below zero again last night. The parking structure was huge, completely filled, and after driving in circles until on the edge of vertigo, we parked on the roof, farthest from the elevator, in bitter wind. She is home and we are still making adjustments to her house for comfort, like getting a full tank of oil since her supply ran out and the house is 48 degrees. Yes, my sister is a great planner and thinker. This is why most of the tasks we need to do for her are unexpected.
The dark side. Much darker than my unbleached.
I did a basic finish on the blue bird, with one thick and one medium layer of quilt batting. I just love this 1" stuff. I bevel the edges slightly, sometimes put a little bit of loose fill into the corners, but it makes such a smooth finish. No lumps or having to move fill around. Fusible interfacing on both front and back.
I have more of the this color, it's close to my favorite dark Rook, and I am on a kick to use dark colors. Really. Big hard kick. I will attempt dyeing a grayish blue next, starting with a cream piece and also trying an unbleached.
Dorothy Allen from R&R Reproductions (you can call or order at Dyeing 2 Stitch) has always been one of my favorites and I'm loving the dark side!
Need to get dressed and get over to Carole's.
Have a great day!
Thanks for visiting.
