We’re having a record-breaking sunny summer in Anchorage, Alaska and I feel compelled to take advantage of it. I received more chemicals (my “drugs”) from my supplier, www.blueprintsonfabric.com and 5 yards each of Kona and Pimatex cotton from Dharma Trading Co.
Do you see the shadow of me taking the photo? It was high noon in Anchorage: The sun always shines at an angle, never directly overhead, and even more so as autumn approaches. I do have the board with the fabric propped up towards the sun, but it doesn’t totally compensate. That’s one reason most of the leaf edges are a bit blurry. The other reason is that the leaves aren’t totally flat. (I’ve pinned them with one pin each.)
My favorites are the fabrics that I previously dyed different shades of green (with fiber-reactive dyes). Perhaps I’ll dye more fabric green this evening, just in case it’s sunny again tomorrow!
