Dyeing Heaven

Spent the day slaving over they dye pot yesterday and had a great time mixing colours and watching the blending that makes even more.

Spring is definitely coursing through my veins! Everything I dyed is related to what I am seeing in the garden - pots of orange panises, tiny blue scilla, fresh spring green leaves and the clear blue sky.

Orange Pansies:

Fresh spring greens:

Blue skies:

Lilacs to come:

It was all a lot of fun and I am looking forward to the next dyeing session and have some things in mind to try. I am still experimenting a lot and playing around with techniques (dip dyeing, painting, hot pour...) and wish I had a bigger stove to work with and more pots to dye in. It is amazing how quickly all the availble space is used up when you are having fun!

Have a great week everyone!
