I have posted this image elsewhere on the web today too. It’s part of a series, and it isn’t really due for full revelation until 2014. However, it is pertinent to playing with dyes, so I thought I’d post it here too, today. If you follow the link you will see that you can follow the progress of this and others too. As it builds the collection can be seen here.
Some of the photographs were taken in very bad light. They haven’t been corrected or manipulated – the ones you see are all that you will get for the time being. Their quality doesn’t matter. All that matters is that this project is continuing, and with each day it becomes more exciting from my point of view. There will be a partial unveiling next year. More news of that will come when a certain point is reached.
Sometimes mixes of dyes are even richer than you remember. I used recipes from a previous session, and I’m really pleased with the result
….. unless you are going to use some of the results
You can follow the progress of some of my stitching here.
Here are some of the results from yesterday’s dyeing session.
The same colours – just different combinations. Such fun, that’s why I love dyeing.
Sometimes life gets in the way! I’ve been trying to dye each day for over a week. At last I managed to pop something into some colour and it dried overnight
It looked fairly scrummy hanging on the line, but of course the marks didn’t properly appear until it was ironed this morning
Just perfect for a project that I need to complete. It’s bright, and will suit a little girl just perfectly.
