New Work - Blazing Azaleas

Last spring I was in awe of the riot of color from the azaleas where I live along the Gulf Coast of Alabama. So, I went on colorlovers.com and created this pallet and saved it to my account.

This spring, in anticipation of the azaleas blooming again, I looked up the palette I had saved and hand dyed this swath of silk gauze.

Next, I blended some fibers - bottle green merino wool with golden bamboo on a drum carder. See the shimmering bamboo? I am hooked on bamboo because it adds loft, softness and SHIMMER!

Then I made some prefelts.

Fibers were laid out. Petals and leaves were cut from the prefelts.

The scarf is rolled up, ready to felt.
