Musings about various textile techniques I dabble with. And other stuff. A bit of a visual diary actually.

The silk did dye but a lot of the dye ran out - probably because I didn't dilute it. I actually remembered why I don't like dyeing much - it uses a LOT of water. I rinsed and rinsed and eventually the dye stopped coming out of the fabric - well enough for my purposes, it isn't going to be clothing.
Here it is, drying on the line.
But enough remained in the fabric for it to be useful. I haven't decided what to use it for: I might use it for tapestry weaving, if I rip it into strips; I might use it for machine embroidery when I try to do it using fabric as part of the design.
Two posts today! I couldn't resist 12/9/12. Just wait, soon it will be 12/12/12 - and almost Christmas.
