reused, recycled blues

September 28, 2012

white and natural grey handspun, 2 ply wool

ready for blanket weaving this winter

using up the stash and I beat the moths to a dinner

I took apart 2 floor cushions, dyed the backs and the piping

and used shibori samples to sew new fronts

the samples were going to be kitchen napkins, now I will have to do more.

or maybe not!

it has been a very blue summer.

      Velma – I try not to remember that disaster and this 30 gallon vat is outside so no blue kitchen!
