It's always hard for me to hear people say they get bored when they're home. My problem has always been getting bored at a job where not just a few coworkers seem content to be caricatures who can't escape the meager roles they've accepted. At home there's always so much to do there are times when I'm not sure which to choose but today I decided it was time to begin work on a new silk scarf.
I have a nice set of Swiss stretcher frames for silk that when not in use can be packed neatly into compact nylon holders. I set them up this morning to hold an 8.5' x 15" wide piece of fabric. I diluted some Pebeo dyes in olive, cyan and Caribbean blue then grabbed some small house painting brushes and a spray bottle of water. Oops, I forgot to mention the plastic drop cloth on top of my favorite little persian rug and newspaper on top of that. Then there's sea salt.
This is the result so far. What do you think?
Hope you enjoy your Easter baskets :-)
