This blog usually has something to do with fiber, dyes, quilts, gardens, nature, watercolor, photos of different things I come across. It originally was about items I had started and needed to finish, then I tried posting a photo everyday, but that didn't work. So it is anyone's guess what will show up at this point.

Yesterday I decided it was time to use up the dye in the fridge from the Retreat, it has been 4 1/2 weeks since it was mixed up. I poured the dye on the fabric and these are the results. I would say they are a little on the wild side of things. Might have tempered them a bit with a little brown, but these are the colors that were mixed and used in some form so that is how I have decided to use them.
I laid one piece on top of the other for these two. There are some beautiful places in these pieces, just hard to see far away and clumped all together.
I have another piece that was folded and dyed to the side of these two and one that I hung on the line and dyed in the wind!!! Also there are 7 pieces from two parfaits shown below. I think they will work into whatever I decide to do. Maybe a courthouse steps this time.
