We have been quiet, but busy. Today was for planning and sorting. We have more dying to do in the next few weeks to get ready for our very first festival.
Here is a sneak peek at what we will have to offer at the Historic Morganton Festival in Morganton, NC on September 7 and 8. Look for us on the courthouse lawn.
I thought ya’ll might like to see one of my shirts on a real person. It’s nice to have friends who are willing to model for me.
Health problems and weather have finally given way and I have been able to get back into the garage and start experimenting again. These are “warm-up” shirts, exercises in color mixing to get back into the groove. Plans, oh, do I have big plans now! The challenge will be to get the images into my head translated into fabric. I have started to name my custom colors mixes after friends who have made particular requests. In the mix up there you will find Zim’s Purple and Tom’s Yellow. Let’s just hope my notebook survives the splattering. I still have Technicolor hands.
These are what is left of the last batch of 6. I am flattered that friends grabbed the others before I could photograph them. The one on the far left with the big red spiral is already spoke for but the other two are available for adoption.
Middle shirt, purple and green, Fruit of the Loom me’s size large crewneck. $25 includes shipping and taxes.
Right shirt, dropped spiral, FOTL men’s V-neck size 2x (I think it would be fun as a woman’s sleep shirt) $30 includes shipping and taxes.

Fly your flag, peeps! Full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes! Much love to all of you.
And, of course, I couldn’t leave this one out. My main helper, the Indomitable Bob. I was trying to do some pre-dye folding. You can guess just how much I got done.
