A few of my favorite hand dyed threads from this last batch.
And against the starkness of the white snow, color is more appealing.
Tray Dyeing with highly concentrated dyes on folded and pleated cotton. It was a happy mistake to not dilute my dyes but to just pour it on. Oops...
The Colors of Christmas
I made this little piece at a workshop. Some people don't finish workshop samplers. I do because I remember fondly my time there and it helps me to remember what I have learned. I like it better now that it has the added element of stitch. Stitch changes everything, doesn't it? The colors are bright and bold. And that's ok with me now. At the time I was comparing myself to others who were using subtler colors around me. Bold and bright is where I am at now.
Color is just beautiful and I am having fun celebrating it this week.
Be creative, my friends!
