The Trouble

with dyeing and painting my own fabric is that it gives me too many choices.  I started dyeing and painting my own fabric because I was never happy with all the choices available at the store, but now I have too many.  Go figure.  Of course, sometimes I get so caught up in the whole color thing I forget that I'm supposed to actually do something with the fabric.  Sheeesh.   I think that having fewer choices makes me be more creative.  But then, there is a lot of creativity involved in putting color on fabric.  Hmmm...

I have figured out how to make a collage in PhotoShop.  Cool, huh?

So which background did I choose?  Um, well -- none of the above.  Yep, I overdyed one that was similar to one of the above for something completely different.  It figures.

Below are the threads I have chosen -- sometimes it's hard when you see so many shades of grey...

But now it's time to stop agonizing and just do it.

I will be very interested in which background you chose because I really like the first one with the radiant blue!!! I'm watching what you do with this very closely!
