I was dismissed from jury duty. I didn't even make it to the selection stage, but I'm grateful not to have to undergo trial procedure.
The blue habotai silk and gauze that took the red cabbage dye so well worked for the latest prayer flag. When I first saw the blues the red cabbage dye produced, I thought of Dylan Thomas' "sky blue trades" from "Fern Hill." I love that poem, and although I tend to like almost everything Dylan Thomas wrote, "Fern Hill" remains one of my favorites.
lovely variegated fine perle cotton from Sassa Lynne for the detached chain stitches and the button hole wheel.
I really liked the blue of that discharged fabric and used it for an outfit, quilted with metallic thread, for this doll. I used the fabric beads for her arms.
I only have scraps of the fabric left, a small piece of the quilted fabric, and a few fabric beads left, but it goes to show that sometimes hoarding stuff pays off. :)
I said I was going to straighten up the studio today; I said I was going to work on dolls today. So far neither has happened.
