Dyeing Time is Here!!!!

I started my first dyes of the season last night (hence the kinda dark picture). The weather was perfect (see the condensation in the bags), so I should have nice colors this morning when I wash them out. I did blues/greens/oranges/and fuchsia. Some of the colors looked a little muddy, but then I have found that even these work well as a contrast with brighter colors so things are never lost. I am actually dyeing several FQ's of the same color this time since I have learned that I almost always need several fats of a color rather than just one. I am going to need to buy more fabric since I dyed about 14 yards last night. My foot still isn't healed and between training for the 5k and standing on my feet, I had pain throughout the night. Oh well, what we don't do for quilting.

Hugs and have a great day!


  1. Awww wish I was there so I could join in! It would be fun, fun!
    Stay off your foot girlie. You can mess it up big time, you know!

  2. Look at all those bags of color. So glad everything came together so you could start. Take care. Lane
