So here's Silas, just arrived from abroad! He's attired in hand dyed cottons, silk velvet and a few jacquards for good measure. He's wearing wonderful paisley boots, that he just had to have! He adores beads, so they abound..................

I am over the moon with this piece and here are 3 views of it. I have a couple of metres of nasty dusty rose silk noil. I knew I'd never use it, so what the heck! The dyes are out and mixed, so I may as well use them. I can't go wrong; the fabric is useless as it is! I love how the nubs of the noil pick up the colour. Now that I see how well it worked, maybe I'll dye up the rest of the yardage!
This is the first piece of my little experiment.It's a shame that I am such a lousy photographer because the colours are just spectacular!
So, does anyone see a figure in this piece? So far there has been a sighting of a cat. Someone else has seen a fish! Anyone else seeing something?
