Afternoon, anyway. I printed a couple more scarves - both of which need more work. Tonight, between steaming, washing, ironing the silk and putzing around on the computer, I actually sewed facings on two sides of a quilt I finished earlier this year. The other two remain to be stitched on and then I have to hand-stitch the rest. yes, I know about fusing.
I am not the slightest bit embarrassed to put this butt-ugly silk up here because I want you to see what I go through when I print. First, I dyed it. Then I deconstructed on it (the fine lines didn't show up very well). It was still ugly, so I discharged through a screen and printed on top. Nothing helped - although if you are a redhead, I suspect it may work for you. However, I will go back in again and do something - either add or overdye or both. But not tomorow: I am teaching a thermofax class.
The scarf says (among other things), "If you wish good advice consult your mother." I once had a customer who was about to buy a gorgeous scarf (not this one) till she spotted that line. She had had an unhappy childhood and disliked her mother intensely. She picked out another scarf. Guess I had better use that phrase judiciously!
Past bedtime and I need to be bright and shiny at 9:am. Hope to post pix tomorrow night.
