Dyeing workshop

A few weeks ago, I participated in a dyeing workshop put on by ACT Textile Arts. It was a fun day and I learnt a lot about discharging, resists and over-dyeing. Here are pieces set out in the sun to dry.

And here are some of the fabrics I produced on the day. I'd like to do more but it has been too cold and wet since to spend time outside, especially messing around with dyepots.

Fabric postcard swap

I've been doing lots of things in recent weeks but I either haven't finished them or don't yet have photos of them. However, a while ago, I participated in a postcard swap through Stitchin Fingers Fabric Postcards group. This is the postcard I sent off.

And here's the beautiful and elegant card I received.
