Pretty colours. This is pretty much what I do. I am motivated by colour. These are scraps of fabric from some rainbow Redondo skirts that I made. My daughter is always drawn to these bits of fabric. I totally understand the attraction, but I am less than thrilled when I find them scattered through the house.
This is what the skirt looks like when it's finished. It's made from fabric that I dyed. This particular batch of fabric I dyed in the washing machine as an experiment. It came out all lovely and even, but, of course, was then lacking that beautiful, mottled hand-dyed look.
This is the week of market madness for me. I will run around trying to do a zillion things last minute even though it doesn't matter how much or how little that I have. The markets are at my daughter's school. I usually make or dye things to sell at the markets, which is why I made the rainbow redondo skirts. Rainbow is big at at Steiner school.
I also made a couple of Farbenmix Antonia shirts for the market. I absolutely love this shirt. I made one for my daughter and then was compelled to make more.
This shirt pattern MADE me cut into my stash of Euro knits. A worthy cause, don't you think?
If you are out Dural way, Saturday, March 15, you can find me with the Lorien Playgroup stall at the Lorien Novalis Markets.
