Pink today, illusion tomorrow

Most of what leaves my hands is pink-spotted
still...
Here´s a glimpse into the nursery - new creatures
in the making (they will go into the shop on Friday)













And here´s a beauty with pink I found in an
antique shop across the street - it´ll become
my new button-box...

























Thanks to everyone who liked the idea of the
Pink Packs and ordered one (or even two...)
I´ve marked them as sold out in the shop while
I checked whether there was fabric for more -
and found enough to put together four more packs
- they will be available in the shop on Friday, too.

Dye try today: apple leaves...


"Whatever is a reality today, whatever you touch
and believe in and that seems real for you today,
is going to be - like the reality of yesterday -
an illusion tomorrow."

(Luigi Pirandello, born June 28, 1867)

I ended up with a tinge of pink on silk and a brownish shade on wool...bought another avocado and am going to continue to play. Next up for me is hops.

..lovely shades of pink...soft...subtle...

I wish I could do "soft" and "subtle" sometimes...but it always comes out different....a bit "louder".

Maybe it's just me? :-)

Love the soft pink...from avocado you say? Wow! I thought of you during the India Flint class...so many beautiful neutrals with touches of darker colors just enough for accent.

Deborah hat gesagt…

Lovely box and quote.

Soft, loud - it takes all sorts to make a world... - that´s kind of you to think of me, Joei, I certainly wish I could have been there... - as it seems I´ve been pepping up the avocado sales lately, so watch out, Deb, not to cause a beer shortage by producing irresistable hops dye results...

That box will be good for rattling too, button cymbals...

ger hat gesagt…

Ha, yes - being LOUD for once...
