..playing around with mung beans!...

I've been promising myself a "shibori" session for quite some time now...

...so...

...using some of the not insubstantial pile of recently dyed fabrics...

...winding has, at last, begun.



The plan is to do a few pieces for use in the long-cloths that I'm working on.

Boy!....is it sloooooooooooooooooooow though......

...but quite relaxing at the same time :-)


It's not just fabrics that have been dyed either.

Here are some threads that have been packaged in themes...




2/28s fine french cotton - 4 x 30m - Landscape Packs




2/8s pima cotton - 3 x 30m - Palette Packs
