Experiment Continue!

StartIt all starts with PFD fabric, glass marbled, rubber bands and a good movie.

UndoAfter time in the dye buckets, a couple of rinses, the marbled and rubber bands must come out. My hands turn interesting colors, but wears off in a few days.

200 Yards and Counting

Every wondered what 200 yards of fabric looks like?  Well, I found out.  Normally I order 400 yard, 100 yards per roll, easy to handle.  But instead this shipment arrived with two 200 yard rolls.  Fabric wrestling at its finest.
200_Foot_RollNot to worry, I am in the middle of dying all of my fabric for marbling and updating the photos and color selection on my web site www.marbled-arts.com  The new photos are much larger and easier to view.  Below you can see a few of the new beauties.  Blue-Green is always a favorite.

Tangerine is becoming popular.  I cannot make up my mind, if this is orange or yellow.  Depends on what you put next to it.

Lupine_2016

The lupine have exploded.  I was gone for a few days at a Quilt Show and was shocked at how fast they grew.  Blooms and bees everywhere.  Gives a new meaning to “This place is buzzing”.

Fox_Gloves_2016
A Few Fox Gloves have also appeared.  They are wild and just show up when and where they feel like it.  More are on the way.

And best of all Miss Molly and I have a new Deck.  This is where we spend our afternoons reading.

Inspired to Create!

Playing_With_SnowI have posted this wall-hanging before.  But just to recap many of you said you couldn’t cut you Snow Dyed Fabric.  I chose the fabric and my sister Karen put this together for me.  And many of you have fallen in love with the idea.  Recently I was delighted to see what was inspired by a yard of Snow Dyed Fabric and the Pavers pattern.

Snow_Dyed_QuiltKarin Rainer calls her creation, “Can’t Cut That Fabric”.  I think I’m in LOVE!  Now I have all sorts of new ideas rolling around in my head.  Just wait and see.

Snow Dying Wonderland

Yes, we had snow for a month.  It started with beautiful fluffy powder.  Then it hung around and turned into ice, also referred to as Cascade Concrete.EvergreenWe even ended up with some beautiful Hoar Frost.
FrostI put all of that hard icy snow to good use.  You guested it, Snow Dying.
Snow_PileYep, my pile of yet to be ironed Snow Dyed Fabrics.  WOW!  I did create some beauties.  You can find them on my website.  I am still ironing and will be adding more to tempt you.
