I have so many cool things to do today that I actually had to make a list! I left my school work on my desk so I wouldn't get sucked into the vortex of grading, etc. Four things on my list:
First, take the bags pictured below and iron the crap out of them to make Alisa Burke's paper.
Second: Take the doodled flowers that came from directions in Alma Stoller's Soulcraft Zine and finish my black and white Rolodex cards for a swap in my Yahoo group. Here is the before picture of my supplies:
And my favorite project for today:DYEING MUSLIN! After school the other day I went to the local Wal-Mart that still carries fabric and purchase an entire bolt of unbleached muslin and every color of dye they carried. I haven't worked with the liquid dye yet so we'll see. I got every color they had to see if I can mix the colors in the Dec/Jan issue Quilting Arts article by Judy Coates Perez. Jane has a project for us tomorrow using the dyed fabric. The before picture of 21 yards of muslin and 17 packages/bottles of Rit dye:
Now, I'm off to work!
happy weekend! -
