i so love spending a day with my friend pamela, breaking all the rules, making a mess and enjoying her yummy fresh vegie garden pickings for lunch.
making art with pamela has a somewhat chaotic feel about it. there are no rules and if there are, why bother paying attention to them anyway??
photos to follow are the results of a day of rust dyeing. i pulled out heaps of fabric from my stash, including beautiful old linen table cloths and a stunning silk nightie, a really old and warn linen teatowel and some scrappy bits of cotton sheeting. i’ve hung them on the new fence my hubby and i created over the long, Australia day weekend – we knew the fence would come in handy for something!
none of the pieces have been through the wash yet so i assume that the colours may not be quite as vibrant once they have. for now though, i’m enjoying the colour draped over the fence.
my working week begins today on this 40 degree plus day. the plan was to start a mosaic “sign” for our garden. maybe we’ll have to retreat indoors to shelter…
