I think this is probably the last of the indigo dyeing for this season unless September turns into an Indian summer.  I have lots that I can work with from very pale and subtle to really strong and vibrant.

This is a kimono length of silk bought in Japan with finished edges measuring approx. 6m in length.  Needs a couple more dips to even out the colour and then it will be ready to work.

Well here I am, there’s a surprise! Our exhibition in Worthing is getting close, new work is being finished and arrangements being made. It’s very exciting!  Here are a few images of things I have been working during forced downtime I have been playing with possible ideas for future work.

The piece that was hanging in the exhibition at The Festival of Quilts is now neatly packed ready for storing.

I quite like them like this, I think they would make an interesting installation tied in their little bundles.

My new piece is finished at last and I will be experimenting with it to see how best to show it.  This is my first experiment.
