Favorite things that I find enjoyable are reading, baking/cooking, dyeing fabrics, sewing, watching a good movie, listening to good music. Not really too different from many other people – we seem to be more alike than we are different
Everyday I try to get some sewing time in (even if it’s just for ten or fifteen minutes, you can get a lot done in short bursts of time, it all adds up). Quilts are my main focus, but I have been known to sew other items.
My attempts to get to my studio are a little more difficult – but I manage to get there to do some dyeing- something I love doing. It is always interesting to see the results of the dyeing process, sometimes you aim for one thing and get an entirely different outcome. I enjoy the surprise!
On this blog my main focus will be on fabrics, mainly silk and cotton, that I have dyed. Although, you may see other fabrics featured, such as the “Irish Linen” tablecloth that I found at a flea market, made by an anonymous embroiderer.
Most of my experience with fabrics has come from experimenting on my own and you can see the results here.
