The Goblins Have Been Busy

It has been a challenging summer here in the Hollow.  Molly spent most of July and half of August working as  a TA in summer school so I was down a pair of hands in the studio.   But we managed to get stuff done anyway.

The beaded lace bracelet from the beginning of July got finished and also an even more fabulous leather and beaded lace cuff.  I used teal leather and a wonderfully fringed ivory lace to make a cuff bracelet that evokes the glamour and swing of the Roaring 20’s.  The goblins are pleased with both of them – they are so sparkly and decadent!

We drafted a pattern for a Goblin Frock and ice dyed some linen to make a trial run with.  We haven’t gotten around to actually cutting the fabric yet.  It is so pretty just as it is.

Speaking of which, next week I will start listing ice dyed fabric yardage in the Etsy shop.  Individual lengths of fabric will be available until we sew them into Goblin Frocks pr Smocks or Tunics.

This week, I listed 10 new ice and alchemy dyed Hemp Rayon Jersey Scarves in the Etsy shop.  If you see one you like, snap it up soon because the last batch sold out within a week.

The goblins love it when they hear the smart phone go “Cha-Ching!”  It means they can order new fabric to do more ice dyeing!


And here’s a final photo of the patterning on my favorite from the last batch of ice dying we did.  The greens are wonderful here!
