|That lime/chartreuse would take over if I put it into the piece, wouldn't it?|
This and maybe one more piece will use the majority of the made fabric from the workshop, so it's time to make more. I've given myself permission to spend around $200 on Kona solids - that will buy me 30 yards, yowza! Pink Chalk Fabrics, look out! Plus I have a $100 GC from my Rotary buddies at Fourth Corner. I don't know yet what I'll buy there, they don't have a huge selection of solids. I need to make bags for my gift exchange friends, maybe I'll get some fun modern prints for those. 4C is doing a tote bag workshop to help people cope with the plastic bag ban that goes into effect in Bellingham on August 1. Maybe I'll do that, too.
I'm also thinking it might be time to cut into some of the beautiful hand dyed pieces I have bought before they become too precious. I saw these spectacular pieces by Heide Stoll-Weber (on line) yesterday. So simple, and so, so very beautiful. Must learn to dye!
Oh, and as a snarky little aside... Why would someone (not Heide, another blog I stumbled onto) put a "follow me on Pinterest" button on their blog when they only have three pins?? Have I mentioned that I have close to 9,000 pins, and over 1,000 followers? Well, maybe I should be sewing instead of pinning like the above-mentioned person probably is!!
