Since I don't have enough black and white fabric to go to Grand Illusion Mystery I found some ways 

I would love to share it with you here.

I used looms to make some ties over plain  black fabric , then I dipped

 it in bleach and it looks like this

The fabric covered with looms never changed and remained black 

After removing the looms and rinsing it in water it looked like

Flowers and sun

Another way is when I drew instantly on the fabric using brushes in different sizes 

What I realized the bleach left the blacks with ( reddish ) spots but not white instead of  pure white .

Jellyfish  was  very obvious 

Hearts and circles 

But some fabric was too soft to stand the  bleach. LOL

Any way it was fun to finish clue No 4  Grand Illusion Mystery

Here are some of my blocks 




Today morning I did some greens and natural blocks for the lovely clue no 3

 HERE   with

Today was the chain blocks hung there at the sewing machine , ironed then the snip snip for 

clue no 3 of 

Grand Illusion, Part 3

In the afternoon we celebrated my DH's birthday and found that my blocks were lovely enough to be a master piece for  decorating the table around Goodies .


The sign's idea was my DD's
