Mid Temperature Colors

I’ve been having such a good time outdoors!  I wonder how many yards I’ll get done before the summer is over!

So far, these are all leftover scraps of yardage while I wait on a new order of silks and cotton.

Here’s some mid-temperature colors – a few blue gray, well I see a bit of yellow/green down there in the bottom left but I’m not sure if that was intentional or accidental!

Blue Gray Immersion Dyed

And then I went to the violet range for a change up.

As usual, I’m linking up with Nina Marie’s Off The Wall Friday which is coming to you today from Quilting By The Lake in Syracuse, New York.

Thanks for keeping me company!


Sizzling Hot Colors

The summer’s been sizzling out in my summer studio but the fan keeps me from overheating.  Some of the colors are

pretty hot, though! Here’s some of what’s been happening out there!

Gold immersion Dyed

This is mostly cotton, some raw silk, with  PRO MX FIBER REACTIVE DYE (aka: Procion Dye) and all low water immersion method.

Some is a loose shibori but most are just bunched up and mottled.

Orange Immersion Dyed

I’ve been following along with Ann Johnson’s Color By Accident DVD  which I purchased from ProChem

and I’m finding it to be a very useful addition to my library.  I also have the book, which I keep with me to refer to as I work.

 What I really like about her is that she’s really smart about what she does but not at all dogmatic.
