I went to Shabd dyeing workshop yesterday. I fell in love with tie-dye/shibori when I took my Textile Design program in Otis. I wanted to learn more and I started following Shabd work and fell in love with it. I tried to arrange for her to teach us a class at Otis but it didn't work out. I was waiting for her to come to LA for a couple of years now. Since then I got her wonderful book and I'm experiencing dyeing with different fabrics and methods. • A few weeks ago Shabd emailed me that she's going to teach a dyeing workshop in LA. I wanted to dye things that I usually don't, like these leggings. I love how they came out. I was so excited to meet her and ask all my questions, she's truly a great artist and a teacher. She shared so much information with us, it was a blast. Thank you Shabd for a great Saturday.

Winter Colors Salad

This post is about my dear friend Sharon Haspel Sa'ar amazing recipe Winter Colors Salad. When I saw her post about the salad I fell in-love, first with the colors (I'm a designer after all) then with the ingredients. As you know me by now I like doing things my way. I followed Sharon's recipe, I made the dressing exactly as she instructed, but I didn't have chestnuts, yams or cookie bags. I replaced the yams with small regular potatoes, and added different colored carrots from our garden. I also added cabocha to the mix. I roasted it with the peel, I didn't want it to get dry. When it was ready I added the orange part to the salad. I baked everything at 375ºF for 45 minutes or so in a baking sheet covered with foil. I broiled only the potatoes a little bit longer. The warm salad came out amazing. Thank you Sharon for another amazing recipe. Xo

Note: the link is to a recipe in Hebrew, I'll ask Sharon if I could translate her recipe to English.
