Hi Dune, and Kaseychief *Magenta waves*

I love it Magenta! May I order one in royal blue?
I remember from my sewing days Simplicity, but I also remember "McCall's",
and I think, if I remember correctly, "Butterworth's". Are those two also still on the market???

Once again, thank you so much for your encouragement and kind words :-)

I have made my first silk scarf, which I think may be a potential market for me.





Firstly dyed in the "mokume" style (Japanese for woodgrain) with yellow dye. Rinsed and dried, and then clamped between two "flower-shaped" pieces of pine ("itajame" style) and dyed with a combination of magenta, turquoise, and a whisper of black. The dye bath and wet cloth looked awful...I thought I'd stuffed it up. However, when I dried it I could see that it was actually quite nice.

Special thanks to Monday for cutting out shapes for me with his dewalt jigsaw :-)

Magenta's craft and designs are even better as the weather is flawless - wall-to-wall sunshine, no clouds, no wind and cool.
It's good to be back amongst friends and colleagues
