I have also added this schedule to my sidebar with the links for convenience. Hope you will join me and follow along each day!
I was approached through email by my good friend, Connie of Freemotion by the River, and she asked if I would be interested in taking part in this hop. I have not had a lot of experience with batiks. But Connie sure has! She makes the most beautiful projects using batiks.
Connie was kind enough to answer one question I had. Was it advisable to prewash? Connie assured me that prewashing was not necessary. Just to use a dye trapping sheet (such as Shout Color Catchers or Dr. Beckmann – Colour & Dirt Collector) when washing your finished project.
Did I mention there was a giveaway?
