Face in the fabric

I dyed this piece of fabric last year and was surprised to find a "portrait ' in it- sometimes I think it looks a little like Rapheal's immaculate protrait of Baldassare Castiglione. it is about 18 inches high so is quite big. I haven't decided what to do with it- or the simply let it be a little miracle in its own right.

Otherwise there was not a lot achieved today.At leasy it is raining which is great for the garden as it is looking as if it will be a very dry year.Posted by Picasa

You are so good at getting that "glowing" effect in your hand-dyes. The effect can be haunting, like this Baldasarre guy.

Apologies if you get this message twice - am having a lame day with computers.

I think its a very haunting image. A few months ago I remember a man selling a toasted cheese sandwich on eBay (I kid you not) which had a similar face on it. He claimed it was divine intervention and was a picture of Jesus. I believe it sold for many thousands of dollars. I'm just telling you this, should you want to expand your options!
