dye week again

The shop is empty of fabrics, so it was time to gear up again. I used an old piece from 2009 as a colour inspiration guide!

I do need to revive my indigo vat though for some blues and soft greens, and wind and prep some more thread skeins!

 

Well, these are a *bit* more vivacious than the “source” 🙂 , but oh oh oh, such eye candy delights. It’s grey and smokey outside, neither summer nor fall, with only a liminal edge that says “day”, so i’m spending a lot of time in the Dye Dungeon. It’s therapy, passion, joy, science and chillin’ out all at once in these times 🙂

Madder, cochineal, onion, marigolds and quebracho rojo on cotton and silk

Listings will start appearing in the shop on Sept 18. Live! Now! 🙂

  1. Beautiful colors!!
    I am trying to dye a color pallette on linen fabric….so far I have a brassy yellow, rusty brown and peach……and a too light blue (I need to totally refresh my indigo vat too!)…..more colors to come.
    Plans for it? I am thinking of making a quilt for one of my kids for Christmas….ha ha ha….we will see if it really happens!
