The dyeing didn't turn out too badly. Certainly I have got plenty to play with for a while.
All dyed in the same container.
Backing for my Trentham entry
There are some people who don't like to cut into hand dyed fabric or don't think that they will work in more traditional settings. I say go for it. and just to show that they can work in traditional blocks I have made up Chris and Barbara's three sampler blocks using the fabric in the top picture and some cream cotton sateen. The patterns are on their website so do take a look - you might even find some classes that you fancy, all come highly recommended
Carrie Nation Block
Clay's Choice block
Old Maid's Puzzle block
While it snowing yesterday (all gone today but more forecast) I made some postcards and ATCs as I had some painted batting left over. I also found a piece that I had done with transfer paints at a workshop at Husqvarna several years ago so that got cut up and made into postcards as well.
I am feeling frustrated as my machine isn't back yet. I think they are waiting until a couple of attachments that I ordered arrive as they know I have a long way to travel. Trouble is I want to get started on the quilting for my Trentham entry and my nice big table does not fit this one. I can see that it's going to be a last minute thing again.
Hope you all have a good weekend and that the snow doesn't create the chaos that it did last time around.
