...for fabric to dry.

Kathryn gave our quilt guild a demo on a soy milk/watercolor painting technique she learned from Juanita Yeager.

This is not an instant gratification project ;-)  I soaked the soybeans for four hours,

added water, blended and strained multiple times.  Next step...wait two days for fabric to dry.

{waiting}...for someone to help me assemble my bookcases from IKEA.  Hopefully this will help with my overflowing fabric problem situation.

...for inspiration to strike.  These lovely fabrics are courtesy of a good friend who gave me a gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop.  I love these rooster fabrics....very fun.


  1. Oh! That rooster fabric IS fun!! hope someone helps you out with those shelves soon! You're way too far away for me to send my 16 yr. old son over. He would love the challenge. ;)

  2. I can't wait to see your watercolor! I can't believe you acted on it so quickly.

  3. Go Rene'! I haven't had a chance to get to Whole Foods for my soybeans. I can't wait to see your painting. Love your new fabrics.

  4. Thanks for sending the recipe. I can't wait to see what you do with the fabric and can't wait to try it myself!

    Once you get the bookcase/fabric storage set up your studio is going to feel so fantastic since you will be able to see all your fabric easily!
