I am kind of tired of Christmas already. I just want it to get here. I think we spend far too long preparing for Christmas. It puts a lot of pressure on us all, I think. Probably in a world with less commercial investment in the holiday, we would start our Christmas preparations about now. No, this isn't an anti-Christmas rant. I love Christmas. I just think it would be a little more special if we didn't have to look at it all for so long. So tomorrow I am taking a little break. No Christmas music, no shopping, no wrapping. I'm changing the subject.
At our High Fiber Diet meeting last week we had a little fabric exchange. Everybody brought something from their stash that they were feeling tired of or didn't need. I got this great Kona Bay print. Just about a yard. I can understand why someone was finding it hard to use. The color seems a little raw to me, but I think I can see some good potential there.
The yellow doesn't have to stay yellow. I could overdye the whole thing, or I could paint it. Of course any color I put over it, unless I use a very opaque paint, which I don't think I'd do, will be affected by the yellow, so it will require a little planning. Just for fun, I played with a couple of ideas in Photoshop. I think both have possibilities.
There is something very satisfying about recoloring a commercial fabric. This one was almost like coloring in a coloring book.
Boy, that is a bold print, isn't it? Wonder what I'll do with it.
