This one the darker color and the center is from a sheet. After my class we put all of the left over dye on it. Turned out really nice. The center is printed with a block that I made.

I follow silk painters on facebook and have learned many things from them. This was one method of shibori shown.I twisted a scarf and then wrapped it around a pvc pipe.
I used some left over dyes from painting a scarf. Then I let it dry and then I steamed it.
This has a little more white then I like, but I will work harder at putting in the dyes next time.

California has its spring and other states are coming behind it. My Dad always tells me about the temperature in Fairbanks because he was stationed there during World War II. It sounds like it will be a while before their spring comes.
I have planted 550 daffodils front and back yards over the last few years. It looks wonderful.
The lilac is beginning. It doesn't smell like the ones in the midwest, but it is the closest I can get.
