The trials and tribulations of someone who would like to consider herself a textile artist (amongst other things), but invariably feels quite inadequate!

Grey Day Dyeing
I've been out on the back porch dying some fabric. I'm trying to get a purple/dark blue/grey effect for some backgroung fabrics and have used Procion Navy (MX3R), Deep Purple (no number - it depends where I get the dyes; Kraftkolour do give the proper numbers which is excellent) and Black MX2R.
Underneath, I used purple, navy and Yellow (MX8G), so there should be some green there as well.
The weather is perfectly autumnal...cool crisp mornings and warm, sunny afternoons. A butterfly dropped by as I as taking a photo of the fabric:
About to send off another activity for Creative Quilting...
