Some new pieces.

I hand dyed this piece on the 17th of may and i have already got my chart ready to stitch Milton the bear from issue 190 of World of cross stitching.
Hand dyed, 14th May I thought these 2 pieces had gone wrong but a stitchy friend of mine liked them and offered to buy them so they have now gone to a new home waiting to be stitched on.

Morning all.

I might just do some more hand dyeing today. I have a load of white evenweave which i can dye and put into my stash for future cross stitch projects. I think today i am going to try using 3 or 4 colours on one piece so watch this space. ;-)

My second go at hand dyed fabric.

Mystical Dawn. I absolutely love how this has turned out. I used the Violet and the blue dyes but only a little so it didn't come out too dark. I rolled the fabric up and when i put it in the tub i rolled it round until it looked like a Swiss bun and i dribbled each dye over the fabric in different places and this is how is came out.

Yay they've arrived.

Woop woop, my Dylon dye has arrived. Already sorted out some cut off's from my fabric stash so going to sort the edges out just so it don't fray during dyeing.

I hate waiting.

I am waiting for my Dylon dyes that where dispatched on Saturday. I was hoping they'd arrive today but they didn't Had an idea for a hand dyed fabric which i'll do once i get all 7 colours of the rainbow. I will dye the fabric so it has all 7 colours but they will be pale not bright and i will be calling that fabric "Faded Rainbows". I so want to see how this idea will come out so i so want to get all 7 colours soon.
