Dyeing the Season

I am off to the Vermont Rug Hooking show at Shelburne today, but had to put together something to work on while there. So a quick sketch and a selection of wool and I am ready to be inspired! No snow here - YET!!! So had to design something with a snowman to get me in the mood. This one will be a pillow with a prodded edge - more on that in a later post.

Also got the dye pots out yesterday and dyed up some seasonal colours. Hard to tell but each colour has four different textures to the dye run. I think I may have to go darker with the patterns. The picture really does not show the subtle change in textures. To me  it is always an exercise in experimentation. Sometimes you never know what you may get from the dye pot. That is the adventure in the whole process! Off to pack....Have a great weekend. Joni

Your colors are just to "dye" for! Makes me want to get into the dye pots soon!
