Dyeing Today...




but not publishing, apparently. I've just wasted half an hour trying to persuade Blogger that it does want to publish today's post. So if you're reading another post headed Dyeing Today...or have already read it, then Blogger has relented and published the original. Actually, I'm dyeing, printing and writing all this week, though not all at the same time; my concentration isn't as good as all that these days! The cloth will come with me to Lyon, so if you're coming, you can get up close and personal with it; I actively encourage people to touch the fabric, stroke it, get to know it a bit. There's a nice mix of strong, vibrant colour and more restrained pastels appearing in this batch, I'm pleased. Who knows what we'll end up with by the end of the week!





I used to run around like a headless chicken when I dyed, but these days I'm calm. What's more, I get just as much done, if not more, and with much less angst. So, while waiting for the dyes to set, I'm writing this, playing with some images and thinking about the lutradur book. The image is one from Barcelona, a grafittoed (grafittied? grafittised?) tree. Amazing what a couple of filters can do to an image, as you can see in this case. I defy anyone not to be inspired in some way by these pictures; in fact, let's make it a challenge... Download one, or both, of the pictures, see what it inspires you to do, write about it in your blog with a link to this post, and lets see how many different ideas we can generate!

And now to see if Blogger will publish this time...sigh...

Hi Marion, thanks for you comment on the blog. I did try ebay but have realised if items don't sell them incur a fee anyway for listing. Think I'm going to put things on my website instead - what do you think?
