Can you believe I get to call this work? Me neither sometimes….

Taking a bit of plain white silk and turning it into those colors is really my favorite thing to do. Followed closely by sewing…. and I’m in the midst of combining the two. Oh wait until you see what I’m up to. Just a few more weeks and I can share that project with you!

But for now…. the shop has had a complete redo. New categories to make shopping for silks easier and a whole line of TEN new basic colors in two sizes! Including a lovely rainbow set. I also added five new variegated colorways to the shop just this morning. *dreamy sigh* I love the multi-colored ones the best.

I’m in the process of getting my sewing space set up today. I’ve got the majority of everything unpacked and my hands are itching to have an afternoon of sewing!

Have you seen this quilt? I’m in love. But I’ve got top pieces of Jade’s to finish up so that comes before I start a new one…… must. finish. current. project.

Oh yes, my good friends over at Wild Armadillos have a little write up about me and I’m offering two large playsilks as a giveaway. Go take a peek and enter to win!

I guess that’s it for today. I’ll be back tomorrow to share CSA pictures and some recipe ideas. I’ll see you then.

xo,

ps ~ for all of you who share my work on pinterest and facebook and such…. thank you. you all really are the sweetest bunch of friends a girl could ask for!

  1. Your new quilt sounds fun… I too must finish last project before I can move on…. I missed the post with the chevron Jade quilt back in April – that’s awesome! Looks so pretty!

  2. It's acid dye. It's only called that because it uses acid (just plain white vinegar) to fix the dyes to the silk. I buy mine wholesale in bulk, but I think a company called Jacquard makes some available for small home use projects.
