So sorry I haven't posted. This week ran away with me! I have been so busy dyeing, washing, sorting, rearranging, etc! Today was the huge town wide yardsale and let me tell you... I never seen anything like it! The streets were closed off. They had beer tents, a merry-go-round, cotton candy, crepe and other food vendors and tons of stands...streets full of them. We found several pieces of furniture for next to nothing! A nice big wood table for 15 euros! I couldnt believe it. We have been struggling here with little furniture and no place to put anything. Now we were able to pick up some things without waiting for six months till we could afford them! So now I have even more rearranging to do but I dont mind. I will finally be able to work properly with some furniture in my studio! ( I have been working with a board across two small pieces of furniture for a desk and cardboard boxes for shelves)
So this week I started sorting all the velvets and other silks I have dyed this last week and I put together some imagination packs. These are just my first attempts at them and I would really appreciate any feedback you have about them. Are there enough items included? Am I missing something? What do you think? I love this idea and plan on making a lot more. I absolutely love working with the velvet and really enjoying the other silks too...especially the charmeuse and gauze. You will be seeing a lot more of them in the future! I have listed the first one on Artfire today and plan on listing the other tomorrow. After I put together some more packs I will be listing the rest of the velvet too. I have around 15 new pieces of velvet dyed and I love them all!
Hope you are all having a fun and creative weekend!
