I was talking to daughter Carrie last night and offered her the remaining amount on my gift certificate for the Habitat For Humanity Art Auction because I know she likes all that stuff. She is tied up in Junior League's Hollydays right now though.
It was lucky, beause when I hedked whn it was due, I realized I had to get my pieces to them by November 1. That means I spent today doing some work on Habitat!
I hot glued the metal pieces to the vinyl covered cement backer board. I was thinking this would be a permanent thing, but it turned out to be temporary. As I was washing the dye off the backer board, the pieces began to come loose. This is good because I can rearrange them next time, maybe all circles and no squares!
I thickened the Procion dye with what I think was corn dextrose, but may have been something else. it was leftover from the Ann Johnson class. It looked like corn syrup wiith a slight golden tint.
When I was going into my dye junk, I found several slk scarves I had intended to dye years ago, and brought them along to the party.
Here is the pre-washed scarf.
Here is the post-washed scarf.
It looks like glacial ice.......
Then I made a dyeing pass on the other pillow case that came from Re-Store. It was dry when I make the print.
And here is my clothes line. Fun, huh? It is much nicer without the bees that visit the flowers in the spring time!
I am going to Home Depot tonight to fix the clothesline problem.
