Ten yards of silk…..

I dyed 10 yards of silk today.  If I could eat china silk, I would….it is so beautiful and easily takes on the exact color of blue I want for the wearable element, a sky Hindu-ish color, like the walls of Silence Heart Nest restaurant.  Peaceful, holy, dream-like.  Thank you, silk.  I dried it in the sun on my rosemary bush, and am hoping it will still smell so good by the time Zoe gets to wear it.  In the next several days, 10 yards will be gobbled up in giant crocheted ruffles.  Crocheting is a bit ruthless about using up materials…
