Discharge experiments and blog anniversary

Five years ago on June 20Th I started this blog. This post is number 479; you'd think that I'd have more posts than this in five years, wouldn't you? Since keeping count over two years ago this blog has been viewed about 16000 times and that amazes me! Huge Thanks! So, to commemorate the anniversary I'll be giving some things away around June 20Th. All you need to do is leave me a comment starting today and please add your email addy. I tried to respond to some comments today and blogger must be off-kilter because a lot of profiles don't exist; I know they do because I've responded before. So, if I haven't emailed it's Google's fault.
 In the next few weeks I'll announce the give-aways of which a few books will be included along with some art work. If you don't wish to be included in the give-aways leave me a comment. Thanks!!!
The first piece is dyed and discharged on black kona cotton and isn't finished yet. The second piece is thiox discharged and an effect I'm hoping to do more of when I can get back into the garage. 100 degrees today; there is a rumor that it might drop to the 80's over the weekend. Fingers crossed here!

Since I won your last give away- don't include me on this one. But I wanted to stop by and say congrats anyway.
Love and hugs,

Lordy, I certainly hope the temperature drops for you. Things have finally cooled here again for a few months yay! Love the thiox piece here Gail, great depth in the colour variations. Congrats on your upcoming blogaversary. Five years is a great effort! Please count me in for the draw!

Catching up with your recent posts Gail :o) Your thiox experiments are impressive and the FPR is giving some amazing texture patterns. I've only done a little dischargeing and that mostlywith bleach altho I do have some discharge paste (ready made) to play with sometime. I think the DV mask is a must if you can possibly stand it. Your temperatures sound horrendous.

Many early congratulations on your blogversary. I'll have been blogging 3 years at the end of June too. I'd love a chance to be in your giveaway :o)

Hope you get some cooler temperatures over the weekend.

Weather I win or not I love the circle ones they look like windows into something. Absolutely amazing Gail!

Hi Gail, lovely discharge stuff.
Happy blog anniversary.
Whew that sounds HOT.

Marilyn said...

Happy blogversary!! I enjoy all the wonderful techniques you try. You're so adventuresome with your art. The fabrics have been terrific.

Marilyn said...

Loving your techniques and experiments!

Happy blogaversary! You and I have been doing this for about the same amount of time. I've enjoyed getting to know you and your art. Thank you for sharing.

I love these fabrics coming out of the heat of your garage. It's been getting up to the 80's this past week and I think that's hot. I cannot imagine your weather.

Seth said...

Congratulations on blogging for 5 years. That is definitely a milestone! Looking forward to all the things you post in the next 5!

Congrats on the blogaversary and I'd love to be included in your draw.
