Colors that sparkle

Although it is already three weeks into summer, today I feel like I first stepped foot into my summer vision.  I ordered silk organza, and some semi-sheer cottons to dye.  Using vinegar as a pre-soak for the silk, I dyed the organza with some beautiful, jewel like colors.  The cottons also came out with some rich, variegated hues…. absolutely delicious…. and I have learned more about process.

Meander with me.

This is the start of a new journey.  A line can meander through a drawing, the stitches on cloth, or the steps we take through our lives everyday, but the lines rarely remain on a straight course.  Sometimes we meander of our own choosing, following curious hunches, investigating new roads.  Other times, no matter how much we attempt to control the direction we go in, life has a way of altering our path.  Walk with me on this journey, meander through the uncharted, discover hidden beauty in unsuspecting places.
