I dyed at my mothers house today!!

WOW! I didn't know dyeing was so much fun!! I wanted to try something new, so when my mother told me one of our dear friends Loretta was visiting her today, I decided to join in the fun. After we did our usual show and tell (as all quilters do) we decided to do some dyeing. I have never tried it before, so I was keen to give it a go. I just LOVE all of our pieces we produced, don't you? How pretty are these colours.


This is my mothers pretty piece.


This is my friend Loretta's pretty piece.


And this is my first attempt of dyeing and I will most certainly try it again some day soon. We tried to do some sun dyeing too, but we only managed to produce slight shadows, so next time we will try a different method.
