Frieda's found the perfect gift for me and Laura. They are new keys for our computers. O how I wish they really worked.

I am up to my ears in washing and ironing of newly dyed fabrics.

80 Special Edition Cottons

108 Rainbow Stripey kit cottons, dyed beautifully by my workerbee Angie.

80 Short Run Gradations. These are something Frieda is providing her classes in addition to her regular rainbow kits (all of us at the Chicago School of Fusing provide rainbow kits). Short run gradations are two to five colors in smooth transitions the full width of the cut. For example:

Yellows to lime to green to aqua in this set. I decided this was a GENIUS idea and just had to make some for my classes. At the moment I haven't yet designed a project that uses them, but hey it will happen.
Starting Thursday, Dave, the recently retired husband is going on a trip to Lima OH for four days, with his motorcycle buddies and I will have the house to myself and the bad cats.
Look for artwork to magical appear, after I am done with all the washing and ironing and dyeing.



I just decided to drag all the platters out to the deck for a quick non-electrical dry. The weather has cooled off a bit, but have no fear, it will get hot any minute. While these panels are drying I will run to the library for a book on cd, so that my brain doesn't totally atrophy while I iron all day.

Aren't they yummy?

  1. Mrs. Mel,

    Those short gradations are so cool. So people who are color blind, and don't like/can't see one color or another could still work with your stuff! (remember to make some with no green in them).

    And WHAT are the motorcycle guys doing in Lima? Besides just going there? Please tell me there a good brew pub or something there. Was amazed at all the motorcycles on the road in N. Ill/Wisconsin when we were back there... all taking nice trips... nobody with a helmet.

    And speaking of brewpubs... you haven't mentioned any adventures in Brewing lately...

  2. Yummy indeed. What fun! The sun has finally come out on the foggy California coast and this reminds me it's time to be dyeing!

  3. Oh the color! I love it! It makes my fingers itch to start working on something. I also love those computer keys. I teach technology and would love some of those to put on a couple of keyboards.

  4. If I may, I'd like to ask some questions about your dyeing:

    a) what is your base fabric? Kona? Other?

    b) how the heck do you rinse them without the dye bleeding everywhere???

    c) I'm going with the assumption that the fabrics on your deck (gorgeous, btw) were left wet for 24 hours before you started sun-drying them, yes?

    Thanks oodles!
    Susan, who would love to be inspired to switch from paint to dye if she could get over the extreme hassle-factor of it all!

  5. These look like giant delicious frozen fruit-sicles...why is everything food with me?

    The colors are goregous. We could all just hang that fabric up without any further manipulation whatsoever. I am jealous. I am hot. I am hungry.
