Another try with the burnt shibori.
The top layer (grey) is burnt the lower layer (gold) is not
My idea is to layer one over the other and stitch them
This first swing isn't quite there. I'm OK with the burn but I'm not lovin the two colors together
and I'm especially not satisfied with the itajime dye on either piece.
The predominately grey piece has a deep maroon line in it that I was hoping would go much further into the fabric.
The gold has a deeper golden brown color that also didn't go as deeply into the fabric as I had hoped.
So I've re-folded and re-dyed them with the dark colors
I'm still not too sure that I will care for the two colors together but I'm hoping to improve them individually, we will see tomorrow.
In other news I got out of work an hour early today and did some garden cleanup...
This is not especially interesting to any one but me but it feels so good to have the garden looking spiffy.
