Yesterday Judith (Quiltordye) and Meagan, the young woman I am mentoring, and I had a batik bash! Meagan and I were batiking some silk scarves. She was using crepe de chine and mine was a medium haboti. Meagan took hers home but I hope she emails me some photos so I can post them. Judith did some very unusual and fascinating processes. I think she will blog about it and I will link to it when she does or you can simply check out her blog now. She has some fabulous prints from her class at University. She also bought me a wonderful watercolor from a gallery she was hanging in of a crow. In case you missed it, I LOVE crows.
And these are a few pics of the scarf I batiked. I will be making 36 scarves (12 Haboti, 12 Crepe De Chine, and 12 rayon eternity scarves 20" X 77") for the store in the next month or so.
