Out of the Dye Pot
I was going through things on the porch, and found my selection of Procion dyes. Considering passing them on since I had not touched them for many years, then figured why not dye one last batch. It ended up being a fun summer project experimenting with not only cotton, but brocades and other fabrics. And now I have a selection of interesting pieces to work with...
The baggie contained pieces above bake in the sun to intensify colors.
Still considering passing on the remaining dyes. For one thing, the process uses a lot of water, not good for our drought sensitive area.
And from the garden... I planted this ginger root that began to sprout in the kitchen, and it is growing..
