How many of you remember that song "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay"? That song has been playing over and over in my head for the past week. I think it's because it reminds me of what I was doing last week on vacation - sitting on the dock next to Great East Lake in Acton, Maine. For two beautiful sunny days I set up all my dyes and laces on the dock and just painted lace. I loved mixing colors, letting the colors bleed into each other and at times, wiping up the spilt dyes with a piece of lace just to see how they would come out. I think I must have dyed over 500 new pieces - maybe instead of selling them I should just make one huge piece work of art? LOL!
Hmmm - now that could be a plan. I have been seriously thinking of making an all black CQ square - say maybe 24x24 in all textures of fabrics - silks,. satins, brocades, velvets and just adding laces - all in blues, turquoise, aquas. I bet is would look stunning - guess I won't know until I try uh?
