I held out for 5 days before opening my bundles (see my previous post) the colours were great ... but the patterns were amazing. I took to the iron...that's the best way to really see all the patterns and colours....It isn't because I want the scarf to be smooth...just think I see more and the SMELL is terrific.....gum leaves ....WOW
this is a piece of old silk from a dress I found in an opp shop....
now what to make of it .....perhaps a book cover
this is the 40% silk & 60% woollen scarf I wrapped around my brass jug with some leaves
This one is metals and some onion skins on silk, so rich.
this is a very large silk wrap...it is very fine and soft. I spent 2 hours pleating it and putting leaves in each pleat.....twisted it and wrapped it around some iron....I have achieved this pattern a couple of times now and I love it.
some more pleats this time on a fine tissue silk....I love how the binding looks like feathers
love to see these knitted up
