Dyeing again

Hurrah for Bank holidays, more time to play,dearly beloved was working ,poor soul, so apart from a golf competion , cooking a roast for one offspring & child I had time to play. This dyeing is done by using Joyce Vance`s crackle dying which is done in 3 stages therefore over 3 days the instructions are at www.pburch.net/dyeing/Guest/crackle_dye.shtml it is a great way to get a variation of colours and clear instructions, I just wish I could get away from purples but I do love them.I scanned these pictures in reality the colours are much stronger

Hiya - thanks for your comment on my blog - I'd love to swap an ATC, so will set aside an Angel for you - let me know your address so I can get it in the post...

Oh, and nice fabric, by the way!

Hi again Pippa - your comments on my blog come through with no email address, just noreply-comment@blogger.com, so I can't email you back... If you email me at katelnorth at yahoo dot com that should show your email address.

Don't even consider getting away from the purples - you have some fantastic pieces here, and thanks for the link to the crackle dyeing - very helpful.
