A gift of lightweight wool cloth from a Toronto girl
took the dyes beautifully.
Dress weight wool not easy to find
but definitely worth the hunt.
My favourite colour combination is now soft greys and tans.
Leaves transferred their colours beautifully to a gift of raw silk from Judy.
This small corner of shibori lines is my favourite of all.
Surprising because of the tangled mess
I always manage to make of those long tails
from gathered threads.
And I was finally able to buy one of Margi's dolls.
They always have a story.
This is Beatrice, princess from an exotic land,
who feels that her giraffe frock and feathered fascinator are perfect for weddings,
whether royal or common.
Must get back to stitching this week.
I've missed the feel of needle pulling thread through soft cloth.
