I have been playing with my Le Scrunch for texture using Tissutex which I have coloured with the Sun Dye Fabric paints - I really like these and have decanted them into spray bottles - I think everyone knows I love sprays. i wanted to show how much it scrunched. Underneath is the size of the piece before I stitched and then hovered y hot iron over the top. Wonderful texture.
Here I used calico as a base - if you have seen us at shows you will know that we have always used calico tablecloths in Australia and I thought it time to start using them up. I have sprayed with the Sun Dye fabric paints in Currawong, Slate and Tanbark using a stencil - Seafoam because I couldn't find my Pebbles but this one is very good too.
Last night we went to the ACO - another wonderful concert - and the last one for the year. Gee they are fabulous musicians. Wouldn't really matter what they played.
This morning we had a big delivery of new sari ribbon - these are off-white - some are white and some are cream as well. Really wonderful. I did a quick special on facebook which went fast so I thought I would be honorable and do one here on my blog. So -the cost per 100 gram hank of 50 metres is $11 and I am offering any 2 for the price of 1 plus postage to the first 5 people to email me firstname.lastname@example.org
the colour is wonderful and I have wound out a ball for myself - just have to iron it and maybe weave it and stitch. Who knows? It will take colour of course. You can, of course, order multiples - most of the 5 this morning on facebook did. Update - all claimed - thanks folks. Hope you enjoy them
Our calender is full - we are off to another concert tonight - Musica Viva.
