home again, home again, jiggedy jig

17 Dec

After travelling for almost 3 years with FAN (Fibre Arts Network), i am so glad to have “The Difference Between A Plum” home again!!!

tdbap detail 3 on returnI’m craving colour again again, and will be digging through the recently sifted, sorted and re-organized threads. Maybe more work like this, smaller, more manageable and finishable!!! Lord knows too, i have a few “failed” ecoprints to use again, as i had done with this one. Make something beautiful from something ugly!

    Looks great! I had a pile of failed eco prints and I gave them a big bath in the indigo vat to solve the problem. Anything that looked “blah” became “blue”.

      I don’t like the way the chemical indigo bath overtakes everything–really want to get a henna one going!

        My failures needed overtaking! LOL!

    Isn’t it nice when a ‘child’ comes home ? Don’t you feel like a proud mama ?! 😉
