New Shirt

 Another decorated and dyed shirt. I think it will make a nice layered shirt.

New shirt

 This is another one of those t shirts that I dyed by wrapping around a large nylon rope. I used vintage buttons and some stripes from the shirt to decorate it. It would be a good shirt for layering.
This is the back of the shirt. I think the rope creates a neat effect.

Would you believe.....

 it is ice? The Quilting Arts Magazine had a article by Carol Ludington on dyeing with ice.

I am just amazed how beautiful this turned out.

High Winds

Our area, Santa Maria, is famous for high winds. This is what happen to my pvc pipe trellis that I made for my two grape vines. This is the second year and I could see all kinds of new grapes coming and I was so excited. Haven't decided what to do next.

Dress Pattern

 This is the new dress I made today. It is Marcy Tilton's new dress pattern. It sews up fairly easy.
 I dyed these two pieces of fabric.
This is a vintage clip on the pockets.
