MORE HOMEWORK HAS BEEN TAKING PLACE! Whilst immersed in pots, pans, and “mess” that Shibori discharge requires, I took the opportunity to do more homework. I put my new “tube turner” to good use, on a wide plumbers pipe, and a narrow metal pipe to produce stunningly eyecatching results. This turner is fantastic – saves a lot of frustration and physical hardship from winding string along bulk fabric – Barbara Schey’s wonderful design, which was freely conveyed to me at her workshop. My handy hubby constructed the device, and presto I can wind my string like a breeze! Methods used in this batch were the pole wrap, Arashi, and Pamela’s method of splashing/sloshing – all to good effect. I am itching now to try my hand at Shibori techniques using dyes. Just hope the weather stays fine – and I finish my commissioned quilt for a newborn during the next few days, so I can Shibori fabrics with the colours of the rainbow. I welcome your comments.
