Soy Wax






Last weekend I was in a workshop learning the soy wax resist method of dying fabric. The teacher was Melly Testa who has a new book out on the subject. Many of the women I have met in other classes were there and the usual camaraderie. It's fun to be with them but I'm always having to tell myself it's okay to like their stuff better than mine. I admire the "real" artists who seem to produce truly gorgeous work as effortlessly as they relate to one another, while I jones for my cocoon - just a moth around the brights...okay, I'm a little kidding. Of course I'm going to be a superbutterfly some day!

I love your fabric! Did you place them on black fabric for the pic - how did you do that?

I love reading other's blogs. I them bookmarked and it's my morning ritual.

You are now officially on my a.m. list!

OH Noel! I like yours. YOur bubble (group project) is beautiful. The purple and navy really set off the bubbles.

You are a superbutterfly, Noel. No joking around about it. None.
