I can't say that I really try to have my formulas reflect the colors around me.  Sometimes they just do.  The color of Joe Pye Weed this time of year is much the same as the color I get using my new Vinyl Sulphon  Bordeaux basic dye color.  Layer that with purple and a green made by adding black to yellow and late summer shows up in my silks.  I'm not quite sure what I will create with these pole wrapped, shibori dyed pieces of FeltLOOM felted merino and alpaca.  If I dye several using the same formulas, however, there will be enough fabric for many possibilities.

Something for the Future of Fashion V show to be presented by the Lexington Fashion Collaborative on September 13, 2013 at the Lyric Theater in Lexington.  Or perhaps it will find it's way on Novemeber 9th into a design created for this year's Carnegie Classics based on the The Great Gatsby.
