Last but not least (new space-wise)

I have sheers on all the windows in my studio. Before I moved down everything was so Extra White that I decided to buy 18 yards of silk haboti to hang as a top layer from the windows. When it came it was almost see through and I wondered if I'd made a mistake choosing white haboti. After dyeing (acid) the silk is gorgeous. As soon as I get back from visiting my new found family in Little Rock, Arkansas, I will stitch up the curtains. The 18 yards is torn into eight 2 1/4 yard panels.

  3. Sue, you didn't leave an email address so here is your answer. Turquoise, blue and green that I made from a light yellow and bue/turquoise mis. They were acid dyes (Fast Wash)

  4. Love the silk colors, I've been dyeing some too, but not such large pieces! Do you have to steam or heat set them? I dye wool in a pot on the stove and just throw in random silk pieces when I have some on hand, but have no idea how to do yardage.
