Hello Dear Friends! There aren't any ~*Friday Finishes*~ as far as stitches to share with you... yes, I know I have a pattern to share, but it is still in need of some computer work & photography before that can be done ~ it will be shared SOON though. Anyway... while trying to manage around the house & keep an eye on a very active almost 8 year old... and sometimes a few 8 year old friends... I've been busy with the dye pots.
The latest copy of the Wool Street Journal arrived in the mail the other day. Reading through the wonderful issue immediately inspired me to get the dye pots out & on the stove. Bonnie Smith shared instructions for tea dyeing wool with very clear direction. I just HAD to do it!
This is my tea~dyed wool...
These two pieces were in the pot together with 6 large tea bags. They must be two different chunks of fabric because one dyed a whole lot darker than the other. I'm really diggin' them both though!
And... it seems I couldn't just stop there... I dyed all this too...
Some came out the way I wanted... and some not... but my results all together make me pretty happy. Now can you guess what I'm thinkin' I want to do now?
Wishing you all warm smiles...
