Here’s one of the new colors I’m trying out. This is brushed steel. I used a resist gel to do the pattern. And it’s not as crisp as I’d like but I kind of like the organic feel the splotched gel left. This is going to be a pillow. More coming… #handdyed #resisttechnique #resistdyeing #surfacepatterndesign #wp

Here’s little miss sassy pants… Off to “school”. She’s currently obsessed with bandaids and is sporting one here. Her daddy is playing in to all this and keeps bringing new boxes home, this week we have princess bandaids (and even more bandaid trash for mommy to pick up). This morning she found a boo boo (zit) on my forehead and I was very nearly forced to wear one until I showed her the “bigger boo boo” (mole) on my arm. I dodged a bullet, folks. #goodmorning #toddlerlife #toddlermom #wp

I’m getting some more nui shibori pieces prepped for the dye bath. (I’m going to do some more of that beautiful pink.) The first step is to sketch out the patterns. Then stitch. Stay tuned. #shibori #handdyed #nuishibori #upcycledfurniture #wp

We’ve started out summer already in the dog days here in #SoCal. It’s not even noon and it’s 90 degrees at our house. Here’s Lily taking her morning siesta. Since the entire house managed to make our way through a stomach bug over the weekend (see my last post for the culprit) the humans are doing much of the same– only in the shade. #dogdays #werehavingfathersdaynextweekend #wp
