I'm pretty sure that the thing that got me thinking about making a CQ version of the fisherman's prayer poem (see previous post!) is that Lauri and I HAD a dyeing day on Friday. I'd been buying a few alcohol ink dyes at a time and finally figured I had enough to do some good mixing and blending.
Here's Lauri, giving me a fierce look because she hates to have her picture taken. I reminded her that she snapped a photo of me with my hair in a towel when she arrived to take us to the retreat in September. But to her credit, she hasn't posted that photo....yet.....she looks like she might be changing her mind though, doesn't she?
Here are some of the things I dyed:
Here's our set up. We used ice cube trays to mix the dyes. It really takes a very small amount of dye, so the individual cups are perfect.
Here are some of Lauri's things, including a square of velvet that got a rainbow wash.
And a few more of mine:
We had great fun, but I didn't do any threads, so hopefully I'll find time to pull out everything again soon.
