dyeing for beauty

 beauty crowds me till I die
 beauty, mercy have on me
 but if I expire today
let it be in sight of thee

My world has been blue for the last five days.

Moons of Jude on your blue skies -- or are they suns? A foretaste of summer?

Jennifer said...

Lovely! Will you be able to share a photo or two of the wedding so we see the beauty all gathered in one place?

Judy Martin said...

I will share some photos, Jennifer. Date of wedding is June 21.

Baa Baa Judio, have you any indigo?

Yes maam, yes maam, three lines full!

24 table runners, each 100-115" long, all paste resisted with dots, dyed with indigo -

A variety of fabrics. Wool, silk, linen, cotton - all took the dye differently, resulting in every tone of indigo from pastel to intense.

I did enjoy it.

My son got married 5/24, and I'm enjoying your wedding preparations a whole lot more than I enjoyed mine;) I'm still trying to get rested up enough to write about it.

Forgot to say how lovely and intriguing these cloths are. Look forward to seeing them in action.
