Dying Happily

Had fun today with Procion dyes by Omega. Used some tips from Ineke Berlyn's book and dyed a nice variety from red, yellow and blue powders.

The weather was dry all afternoon for a change and I could complete the process. I dyed calico and various undyed threads for inspiration at some time. It was a relief to do this in the garden without the pesky mallards pecking at my heels!

We are off to Wales tomorrow for a week so I hope to gather some landscape memories for pieces to use these fabrics up! Have packed sketch books, camera and the hollyhocks piece to put together. Also I'm going to try my hand at knitting!!
