Indigo Dreams


It's been a blue Christmas.
Very blue.
Indigo blue.


Stitching.


Banding. Pinning.


Tyeing. Binding.


Dipping and waiting and rinsing and dripping.


In the cool of winter; a challenge since the dye has to be kept rather warm.


I warn you. It's addictive.














Table runners. Napkins. Clothing. So many ideas!
















Did not like my new electric tjanting tool. The sharp point catches on the fabric. Next time I won't use it.
































No. I don't think I'm even half done yet. This just has to run its course.

Stay cozy.

I have to repeat myself Judy...THEY ARE SCRUMPTIOUS! I so enjoyed perusing each and every pattern and different shades. THANK YOU for a tastier after Christmas SPECIAL!

Sue Burton said...

Addictive, yes. Perhaps you should put the warning at the beginning of the post. :)

Can you sand or hone the sharp point of the tjanting tool (try a diamond stone)? I didn't know they made electric ones . . .

Wow! You have some fabulous indigo designs there, Judy? How much fun for you to create and how much fun for us to be able to see your " blues!"

Happy New Year.

Seeing this, I should drag myself from my paper books and dive into the art of dying fabric... it looks amazing indeed!
