Roses for you and me

Our handicraft paper has a number about roses/flowers in different areas and type of handicraft.Hopefully I have it in my postbox tomorrow.Today they had on their site a pattern I did this evening.No,no words yet but hopefully before the weekend. I made it in linen fabric and red in DMC 3685 and green in 3362.You can choose your favourite color and it seems the designer used at least 3 different colours on the roses. http://www.hemslojd-tidningen.se/2012/05/28/diagram-till-rosenbroderi/

False shibori

The last workshop I participated in I learnt to do a type of shinori.What's very interesting is the made fabric about 24 hours after using print colour,a thin colour version with more water in than when you print on the fabric and then waiting and suddenly you get a surptice.I hope you can follow the line from white fabric to false shibori.
