Let's see..........no, you don't have to wash your fabric before coloring on it.
Yes, you can wash a color tinted quilt. Just use very mild soap and cold water, no stain fighting anything, and take as much care as you would for any embellished piece.
No, our Santa wasn't stolen! LOL!!! We put our Christmas tree out at the end of the driveway (anything we put out there will disappear before the day is out...MAGIC!) When Phil walked out there at dusk to see if he needed to drag it back to the studio...it was gone but a BIG sign was in it's place (The one on the previous post. If you click on it, it will get bigger...then you can hold down the ctrl key and scroll up to make it bigger yet!) It was SO FUNNY!!!! We just couldn't stop giggling about it for a couple days! The people who "abducted" it put an ad in the craigslist classifieds about it...they took "kidnap" photos of it, all lit up, with cutouts of Elvira and John Wayne! Really hilarious!!!!
Yes, I'll do a color tinting tutorial soon...don't have time today! I'm getting ready to go to the Walla Walla Quilt Show next week...trying to figure out what quilts and things to take...how to display them, etc... I don't want to just hang stuff up!! It's GOT to be pretty! If you're in the area, stop by and say hello! I'll also have a new little free pattern to give away!
OH! We have all of our Weeks DyeWorks embroidery floss on sale for 40% off....it's been put in 8 skein assortments. I've decided it's time to just jump ship and make everything with Cosmo floss so we'll be converting all of the patterns and the Weeks floss will be only available while our supplies last. Get it while it's HOT! Beautiful floss....$10.00 for 8 skeins...usually $16.80...WOW!
Talk to you later!
