BYOCd (Bring Your Own Casserole dish)

I have the good fortune of living in an area loaded with talented, artsy people. And a bigger blessing is that many are my friends. Last weekend, one friend provided her ample studio with sink and microwave and covered tables at the ready. She and another friend bought and brought many silk scarves that were white as snow. A friend of one of those friends brought her dyes, iron and ironing board. And off we went! Jane set to twisting, spiraling and eye-dropping, above....
Alison ironed a beautifully patterned creation the food table! (I think the food tasted better for it, too. )
And I went home with these and more - my first attempt at scarf, or any kind of, dying. It was very fun, indeed.

I could have continued on until midnight, what wild abandon!

Careful! Dyeing silk is addictive. I know from personal experience. Before you know it, you'll be making so many you'll need to sell some to feed your habit. ;)

Let's get together soon!
