Painting Spring into Summer

Five hours later! Its painted and now is being gently steamed!

Guess what I did yesterday – all of yesterday!

I have decided that I need a bigger steaming pot or I should stick to smaller pieces.  I noticed while blocking that there are two defined lines of dye blending on the shawl.  Right at fold lines and there were a lot of fold lines to get “Spring into Summer” to fit into the steamer basket of my current steaming pot!

Happy Viewing
