A couple of years ago I went to an auction and bought several boxes of fabric and sewing-related things, you know, one of those auctions where they're trying to clean out a whole house, and you get the boxes for $1.00 or so each. Well, there were about 10 yards of a white linen fabric in one of the boxes, and I pulled it out the other day and decided to dye it. It wasn't a plain white, it had a floral pattern in it--reminded me of a tablecloth that my mother might have used. I cut it up into several smaller sections, and this is what I ended up with after a dyeing day:
It's been so hot here for the past two weeks or more, every day it's 95-100 degrees, and we've had absolutely NO RAIN. Might as well live in the Arizona desert, that's what it's turning into here in central North Carolina. I stayed in Sunday and quilted this piece of batik I had made a while ago. It's literally still on my sewing machine table--waiting for me to get home from work tonight.
