Remember all that purple silk velvet I dyed? Here is how part of it is being transformed into fiber art. The background is hand dyed cotton and the strips are the silk velvet and the colorful shibori dyed section is also silk velvet. It's called "Hot Flash". I will show you how it progresses as I have time to work on it.
Project #2 is slow in getting back to me so I am moving on to Project #3 which arrived when I wasn't looking. No Grumpy UPS Guy- instead it was Happy US Post Office Guy.
Pictured above (It's sideways. Sorry) are three bolts of silk for me to cut up and a truck load of dyes for A'kai Silks in Hawaii. It will become 50 belly dancing veils. It will be a total of 150 yards of habotai silk transformed into lusciousness. Just pinch me in because I think I am dreaming. This is work. This is my job. Badda bing! Am I the most blessed person alive or what????
Here is one bolt cut into the sections waiting for the dyes. More tomorrow!
By the way, the banners arrived safely in Texas.
