Back In The Studio ~ Busy and Grateful



I am so grateful to be able to create in my studio again. My eyes are almost healed. I still have some floaters and will probably always have them but my vision is good and for that I can only be thankful.

I've been busy dyeing and upcycling clothing. I have piles of vintage laces, doilies, flounces, trims, and clothes strewn about and it is so freeing to be able to dive in and color these things!

I will let the photos I took speak for themselves of my environment, shibori dyed silk organza, vintage doilies and crochet bird trim in dusty blue gray, velvet, chiffon, and laces in the palest seafoam, and works in progress.

Hooray for getting your eyesight back! Love the studio photos and hope to see some of the creation at your Etsy shop...I've been making sales and will use some of the funds to buy one of the flowers soon- unless a beautiful garment comes along =-)

Oh Frabjous Day! Calloo, Callay! So glad you're back to work. And, your beautiful pictures do speak for themselves.

Thank goodness. What a relief to read this, I cannot imagine you being "still" all this time. Now get back to all the lusciousness of your art!

Yay, Lorri!!! Glad you are back and feeling okay. The floaters stink but most of the time I am now able to work around mine and I hope you can too. Some days though it's like my eyes are having a party without me.

And I haven't forgotten your flowers. I need to do a few more black and they will be on their way to you. Probably after Memorial Day. Sorry to be so long.
All the best,
doris
