Be a veritable spring flower yourself!

Look familiar?  Ahhh, but some of them have been dyed yet again and now they are all ready to go for this weekend.  Dang, I love these colors!  Got a favorite?

In the Studio - Silk Scarves in progress

This week is all about scarves.
Saturday, I dyed silk chiffon scarves and silk organza fabric for ribbons and embellishments.
Some of the scarves will be left just as they came out of the dying process - they'll be beautiful wrapped or rolled or otherwise tied as is.
Others I'll add a little ribbon here, some stitching there.  Just a little something to make it that much more special.
To my surprise, I've discovered that the handwork is actually a pleasure.  Almost a meditation.  And, in the midst of the frantic preparations for ArtBrake, I can use a little zen therapy :).

From In The Midst to in the gallery. If I didn't know differently, I would think my dna was more like this...which might explain a few things....
