The Heat is ON!

It was about 103 degrees when I wrapped up these four pieces yesterday.  I survived by using my new mister fan.  What a fantastic thing that is!  Course I was soaking wet by the time I finished, but I was cool.  Unwrapped today without aid of the fan, a bit later in the day.  It was only 100.  Was quick to unwrap, rinse and hang to dry then back inside with the air conditioning.  Whew!  The long pieces are shawls.

The shawl on the right has been washed and pressed.  Dr. Bonner's hemp soap (castile) leaves the silk feeling luxurious.

I've made several pieces now using my auger and I love the effects I get.  Would love to find a larger diameter auger for big cloth.

  1. How did I miss this posting?
    I always love how much your pieces remind me of snake skins..... such a very natural and organic 'feel' to them.
