Reeled silk in all it's shimmering goodness. Check out the halo.  I can't decide if I want to use this as is or paint it or soak it in a dye bath.  I just want to celebrate it as best I can.  I guess I'll just have to put it in a bowl and admire it for awhile while I decide!  Many thanks to my weaver friend Shelley for passing this on to me to use.  I can't wait to challenge myself by stringing silk onto my loom for the very first time.

How would you choose to work with this bounty?

Happy Making!

Ooooo! It is beautiful the way it is. I always have a hard time changing the natural beauty of fiber. And don't get me started about whether or not to paint/ stain wood...

Can't wait to see what you decide.
