I've been Dyeing
Anyway, I was thinking it was time to order more dyes. Especially blue and green. Then over the weekend I touched base again with a gal who is dealing with health issues and can't do her quilting anymore. She asked if I could use some Procion dyes and I said sure! Well I didn't know she was going to gift me with her whole dye kitchen!
There were jars, sponges, gloves, measuring cups and spoons, face masks, wooden stir sticks and even an apron. Oh, I forgot to mention the dyes and the books on dyeing fabric, the salts and water softener. I've got lots to studying to do when things settle down around here.
Dorothy, if you're reading this, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I'm loving the three packets of fabric dye for use in the crock pot. Dorothy had three primary colors and with them I can make just about any color. Here you can see a blend of the red and the turquoise (which is really a blue color).
Below is a purse and matching coin purse that I finally got felted today. I plan to add lining and I think I'll snazz up the flap on the little coin purse. Lots to do before this weekend's festival.
Looking forward to cooler weather. We got 180 bales so far off the hayfield. I hope there's a least another 300 bales left in the rest of the field.
Oh, the pond is getting more water in it and the corn is looking good.
