Look at what I did last night! I've had these blouses in my closet for ever and although I love the shape of them I've never once worn them (tags still on)! White is so blah. I mean it's terrific if your a waiter or lab technician but other than that, why bother?
I used Dylon on both of them. The one on the left is Amazon Green and the right is China Blue. Such an improvement! The green one is silk and the color set in nicely but the camisole with it is polyester and it didn't take a bit of the color so I'm going to have to find something else to go under it but at least I know to get a natural fiber so I can dye that too. I'm really happy with the shade of blue on the right and I'm sure I'll get lots of use out of this blouse now. That was fun and I stirred it a lot so the color is even on both of them (I usually end up with a marble effect so I'm very pleased). I'll be doing more of this I'm sure!
And Scott over at Blue Nickel Studios has his Be A Man ("BAM") quilt up! That fabric is such a hoot and I can't wait to get it in the store. There is a beer print in this line and I think it would make a hilarious baby bib (why be ordinary?) so hopefully one of my pregnant friends will have a boy.
We're leaving for Quilt Market in 4 more days!!! Joey and I ran out and bought umbrellas last night since the forecast for Pittsburgh looks like we'll get rained on at least once but probably more. Unfortunately there will be no Fabric 2.0 party this time but we didn't want to miss out on a chance to all get together so if you're going to be there we'll be gathering at the Palm Court Lounge Thursday evening (after the Schoolhouse series) starting at 6:30. The lounge is located in the ground floor of the OMNI Penn Hotel (about 1/2 mile from the convention center) and there is a free shuttle (Molly's Trolleys) to and from the convention center starting at 7:00. This is a great time meet your favorite "online" friends (bloggers, store owners, designers, everyone!) and it's open to everybody so there are no excuses for missing it (except for the fact that you'll have to pay for your own drinks and food and that's not even a good excuse, just a cheap one!). Don't forget to bring your camera!
