New Silk Scarves

The studio was awash in Procion this past week as I dyed a new batch of scarves for my booth at our local Octoberfest Art Share October 23. 

I was using beach rocks bound with artificial sinew from Dharma Trading Company.

At lunch the sun broke through for a walk on the docks by my studio.

 After work, another walk with Flossy.

Blind River Rapids trail ends with a beautiful view of Crystal Mountain.

 The foliage in the muskeg alongside the boardwalk is really turning colors.  I was struck by the contrast on this lichen-covered stump.

Have a creative Monday!


  1. I am enjoying looking at your beautiful photos.

    Thank you for your kind comment on my blog.

  2. Great photos, Susan, and the silks look wonderful. Tip: if you crochet or knit, then use crochet cotton for wrapping and tying shibori...then you've got wonderful already-dyed thread to work up into something else!

  3. oh my gosh, this makes me want to try tying and dying some muslin. if with nothing else than just walnut ink. i love the idea of tying it with stones... the colors you got are gorgeous! it must be so exciting when you untie everything!

    creative monday to you, too, susan!

  4. I love the shot of Flossy amongst the tall, fading grasses.....

  5. Hope the show goes well, looks as if you are enjoying the process.


I love to hear from you - please leave me a note.
