sun and silk

There is hope yet for the crafting mama...Reuben has patiently watched me working on a couple of projects this week.I'm using China silk and Jacquard dyes from Dharma Trading Co. Before, I did an elaborate steaming set up, which browned a couple of my silks. This time I used the dye fixative & it was awesome. We were working in the sunlight this morning, and the sun on the silk was so, so beautiful. This wee birdie loves the sun, too, and is singing spring our way.
Reuben loves his silks. He chews them; I like to drape them on my baby.Very soon, both of us will love peekaboo. I'm so excited!
