A Dyeing Day

I was going to go to the quilt show in Pueblo today, but it was only on Friday and Saturday; guess I should have checked. Instead, I dyed. I dyed 12 sets of onesies and socks in rainbow colors, I dyed clothesline for more bowls. I dyed two of my older t-shirts to make them more interesting. I dyed one set of light-medium-dark fabric for the eventual tumbling blocks. I over-dyed some fat-quarters I had dyed previously that had a lot of white. I over-dyed some commercial fabric, and I took a shot at doing some simple shibori. If the shibori doesn't work I'll just over-dye, so no risk really.


I've done some reading, and I only have to wait three hours till I can start rinsing. That will be in about an hour (the onesies will be rinsed first). Then the shibori and all the other stuff in two-three hours. It's always like opening presents. I'll take pictures when I've rinsed. I didn't get any while I was dyeing, I'm just too messy!
 
I got some pictures...the top one is of the onesies being rinsed, the bottom of the other items being batched in the sun coming in the back door. It's still too chilly outside to put them there.
