Lynne showed us a wonderful top that has yet to be quilted. She has a wonderful color eye and dyes all of her fabrics to use in her work.
After a long break (because I've not been home), I'm finally home and ready to get back into the swing of things...including my blog.
Thanks for hanging in there with me.

Moving along.....Kate and Mary had never dyed with acid dyes and it's one of my favorite things to do...gorgeous color. Acid dyes only work on animal fiber so wool and silk take it beautifully. They also exhaust themselves quickly so you are left with clear water and very colorful fabric at the end of the process - usually around 20 mins.
Kay Sorensen's who is the queen of kaleidoscope ice dyeing (check out her blog and upcoming exhibit)). Her beautiful pieces inspired us to try it......We still have more figuring to do but think we are off to a good start.
Robbie sent Mary some white cotton velveteen which we split into 3 pieces and ice dyed...well...YUUUMMMY...thanks Robbie!

It's Folly Fun time.....Every so often, we (Mary and I) are very lucky to be able to go to Folly Beach which our good friend Kate who owns a beautiful home there. We go for several days and play, play, play....We all love doing these wonderful surface design techniques and try and come up with some new ideas for experimenting.
Robbie, sent to Mary. We were also wanting to do some eco printing which we still haven't conquered but know we will at some point.

Lunch is always a fun time....a time to sit and chat and share our latest projects. It's even more fun when we can do it on Vals back deck. She has a breathtaking view of the City of Asheville.
