feels like fire

This gorgeous photo by is my inspiration for the Project Spectrum Challenge on flickr. For the challenge this year there are 4 color combos each based on one of the four elements fire, earth, water, and air. Each element gets two months so everyone can have a chance to finish. Most of the group are knitters but there are no limits to media just color/concept so I figure there is room for some Shibori. First up is Fire using Red, Orange, Yellow and Pink . I totally love this kind of challenge, open ended, lots of room for interpretation just fun. I will try something a bit more ambitious than I've done in awhile, designing two coordinating fabrics for a particular sewing project...probably a garment. I feel fairly confident about dyeing. However this will require a larger piece of fabric than I've attempted before and that always creates a few challenges. I am less confident about the construction part, I haven't sewed a garment in a while. But I'm getting ahead of myself... I think it will be fun to take part and I encourage everyone out there to join in with their own fire inspired projects!
