Trying out a new technique yesterday. I had some 100% silk scarves I had purchased a couple years ago that I had been wanting to dye. I also had purchased some silk paints that didn't go very well the first time I tried them, but since they were here thought I'd try them again. This is my first silk scarf done with the silk dyes.
Loving watercolor as much as I do I really like the way this scarf came out. Not necessarily my colors but springtime-ish and cheerful. They kind of look like waterlilies to me. What do you think?
These colors are muted and not too bright. I was surprised as they looked so much darker as they were being painted on.
In a more recent post there's a picture of a scarf a friend did last weekend. I love it too! We may decide to do a few projects for the craft show this summer. You will only get to see the pictures if (IF) they turn out.
Our Great Pyr Bella seems to be feeling better. The surgical vet examined her this week and said both her knee caps were sliding off her knees going to one side or the other. Usually they will just slide off one way, but her ligaments in her back legs are so weak the knee cap slides either way ... both legs. No wonder the poor girl is in a bad mood from time to time. That really must hurt. He didn't think surgery was necessary right now. He thought we could wait a while and we have put her on glucosamine, Boswellia Extract, collagen and an herbal supplement for inflammation with an emergency painkiller of rymedyl just in case she needs it. She seems to be doing fine for the moment.
BTW, my white scarf is now ready to use. And it turned out just as I'd hoped, nice and soft with lots of gentle draping. This just may be a good one to enter in our fair this fall.
