Progress on multiple fronts
I don't have anything particularly interesting to share today but I am making progress on several things. I hope to get one of my own charity quilts loaded and basted today and ready to start quilting tomorrow evening. I have my sewing things packed and ready to go for the CSQ sewing day tomorrow and Saturday.
Yesterday was dyeing day and I dyed a lot of new shibori pieces for the shop. I also finally dyed these stitched shibori samples that I stitched on out vacation in August. As soon as I publish this post I'll be sitting down in the basement for an hour or so to pick out all of the stitching.
I also got this mandala washed and blocked. It will be ready for binding soon. It looks a lit better without the Cryola markings all over it but it's still pink. I'm glad I got this one out of my system so I'll be ready to do another that's more in my color palette. I learned a lot doing this quilt....certainly more than I could have learned in a class. So even though it's pink, it was well worth the time and effort.
I'm off to my shibori sweat shop.

I can handle the pink on this one - it's not baby pepto-bismol pink that I heartily dislike. Fuchsia is definitely good - I really do like this one!

With all the pink quilts I have made lately and still having two to finish, I am so over pink! Your piece turned out beautiful and it great that you learned a lot from it.

You can always make that pink medallion into a wall hanging and put it in the guest house where you won't see it so often. :-)
