Longarm quilting and snippets of my life

1st dyeing This is my first attempt at dyeing my own fabric. The bottom row are the primary colors; yellow, turquoise, fuchsia. The top row are mixed; green, purple, orange. They’re marinating now and I’m hoping to get them rinsed, washed, dried and ironed tonight. I can see where this could get addicting. I don’t really have a good space to do this, I was trying to do it on the side yard, and it’s a bit windy today. I have some colorful concrete, and a colorful hand, (my glove sprung a leak) I might play some more with mixing colors tomorrow.

I can’t seem to get rid of this headache that I’ve had for the past couple of weeks. It’s tension based, and I think I just need a good massage. I happen to know someone, I think I need to give her a call.

It’s supposed to be hot here this weekend, around 85. Good weather for dyeing, don’t you think?

  1. looking good Carie! And watch out, it is VERY addicting!

  2. Addicting is an understatement! I was FORCED into my first dye session by my best friend. Guess who now has a dedicated dye studio, dyes one day a week and jsut started selling hand dyed fabrics? Not my friend! LOL!
