On August 13th, Lee Ann Bell unexpectedly, and tragically passed away in her sleep.

Lee Ann was such an amazing creative person, with a want for knowledge that drove her creative spark and and desire for appreciation of her works. She had a sharp wit and a dry sense of humor with a laugh the would light up your soul. She is missed every moment.

Silk Organza Itajime Kimono Jacket

Itajime dyed silk organza. I dyed it navy then folded and clamped it, discharged it in thiox then while it was still folded and clamped, overdyed it red. Tomboy Design created the kimono pattern and finished it. The organza is double layered to make it less sheer and to create an interesting pattern in the background. I hope you like it! I just love it so much!

Green Fish Print Scarf

I had the fish net design printed on jersey and had a shirt made and some ties, which came out well, and decided to do the sublimated and dyed print on the cotton/polyester fabric which I've used quite a bit. I think it made a nice scarf with the fish print as the tips and the sublimation print on dyed fabric as the body.

Aqua Shibori Brocade Scarf

Spring colors for this year. A combination of silk charmeuse shibori and polyester sublimation tips. Hope you like it. I've enjoyed working in some lighter colors for spring after such a cold and long winter!
