Independence Day--July 4th--is almost here! Time to celebrate!
I love the patterns fireworks make! The circle here is actually the moon!
more of the moon! These fireworks patterns inspire me artistically to think of dyeing projects.
This photo was taken at a fireworks show after a Reds baseball game. My friend Sammy's band plans to use this photo for the cover of their new album Live Forever!
and with flags!
I just finished dyeing a bunch of these chamois (soft, very absorbent towels) for Kast-A-Way Swimwear. This particular flag chamois is taken from the Dive Cincinnati/Springboards and More website. (I cannot believe I didn't take a photo of a completed dyed flag chamois!) Here ↓ are some flags just after they've been dyed.
Speaking of flag chamois, the Summer Olympics are coming up, so these are very popular right now.
It would be so great to actually see one of my chamois at the Olympics! Do let me know if you see them. To the left and right are photos of some of my tie dye chamois for those of you who have been asking to see them.
Here ↓ is a cute little boy wearing a flag shirt I made. (You can find these in my shop.)
And here ↓ is a photo from a tie dye session at a Girl Scout summer camp in 2009 from the blog post Red, White, and Blue!
I'm linking up with my favorite teacher, Ms Jenny Matlock, as we work our way through the alphabet. Please do go visit the other students, for you never know what gems you may find--humor, poignancy, information, visions of far away places, stuff you've never even dreamed of! Check it out HERE. You may even wish to join in yourself! This week our letter is "F."
