More Dyeing

I'm truly obsessed now. I had to try the navy blue that dh bought. I wanted just a light blue though. So I tried just an 1/8 of a tsp and I'm very happy with how it turned out.


I have been stitching on "Heart of America." I'm so close to being finished. I'm so sad to see it ending. I have really enjoyed stitching this one. Maybe I'll stitch it again someday - my dad did mention that he liked it! :) I don't have a pic though because there's really nothing to show since the last pic and I'm losing my light. My camera acts up when the sun starts to set.

Thank you all for your encouraging words on my fabric dyeing. It's a lot of fun and so easy - I highly recommend it. Well, my last photography class is tomorrow. Another thing I'm going to miss. It's been so much fun. I can't say that I have learned a whole bunch, but it has been fun being around a lot of people that love photography as much as I do. Here's my pic I'm planning on sharing tomorrow. Our assignment was to take a portrait shot. We were also supposed to do a photo story, but I'm kind of stuck on that. I'll have to think about it some more...

Picture for Photography Class.

Write later!

  4. I really like the blue fabric...and the pretty colors from your last post as well! I may overcome my "fear" and actually try my hand at dyeing (LOL...I first typed "dying").

    What dye are you using? Or did you already mention it and I just missed it...?

  12. Pretty blue color!!! Darling picture of Matthew - I love black and white photos - they express so much more than color ones.


  13. Nicole that is truly a stunning picture of Matthew. How on earth did you get him to stand still long enough to take it? Your fabrics look great! Don't stop. Can't wait to see the next new coloor you come up with.
