more finds

More shibori from the bottom drawer.This one is Japanese madder, あかね。First and last time i got such a nice rich color. As you can tell it was dyed more than once.

medallion This one was dyed with mx dyes,as i had not gathered the courage yet to try indigo. It was in the old days. But i do like the olive green side bands with dark blue combination.

i'm recycling work because i'm very busy with an on line course from Fiber-in-form It's a ton of fun, lots of hard playing. If you have a chance run and enroll for the next one.
Also following the on line study group for Find your own visual language book by Jane Dunnewold, Claire Benn and Lesley Morgan. We are working our way through the exercises and the group is very supportive and with a very positive spirit.

You most likely won't see it, but macafee is driving me bonkers with their site protector. It blocks most of the images and all you see is their name. Great for surfing blogs :(
Have tried to block it but no way. Even my own photos, as the first one here, get blocked because they seem suspicious to the thing.
Does anyone know how to override this?

  1. i should be living in that bottom drawer. i got rid of Macaffe. i am using avg. its free and less bothersome.

  2. I got rid of them also and now use AVG

  3. Neki - I love the things at the bottom of your drawers! The madder dyeing is beautiful.

  4. Just catching up on all your posts. Love your bottom drawer pieces, nice to know that you too started off with Procion dyes. You'll be pleased (or maybe not when you get asked a thousand questions) that I bought an Indigo dye kit from Jane Callender at Ally Pally. Obviously too cold at the moment for an outside vat. Did consider putting it in one of the workrooms but will have to think on that as house is totally carpeted in cream - won't look good with dots of Indigo trailing everywhere. :)

  5. These are gorgeous!

  6. Hi Neki, is the madder piece silk or cotton, and if cotton, what did you use as mordant? Thanks! Monika
