Lingerie for Man


What to do with leftover fabric? I can't throw it away and some pieces are too big for quilts and too small for garments. I took the leftovers from two shirts I made Jim and turned them into boxers. I'm not sure if you can see the details, but I used a green holographic thread for the hems and for the stitching around the fly.

The Final Product






Here are some of the finished projects hanging on the line. Yet to come are the orchid and "jade" which is actually a gorgeous peacock blue.

Dye Buckets





Here's the start of the dye project. As before, the color I thought I was getting was different from what ended up in the bucket. The deep purple is supposed to be a pastel orchid. But... dyeing is an adventure and it works best when treated as an adventure.

My New Kick Wheel



It's not new, but it's new to me. Jim refurbished it and it's now on my patio - or my outdoor clay studio. Tomorrow, I give it a test drive.
