My friend Diane came by this weekend. We played with the dye pots and did a little felting. We had a delightful time. I ground up some cochineal and we let it soak all night and came up a bright fushia dye pot. And we also renewed the idigo vat.
A Little of this was done:
(Can you tell we've not used these shiny implements in the dye pot before? They were well initiated by the time we were done.) Then into the pots they went.
I just love this piece by Diane....but
when you look closer:
This little monkey is revealed.
Then I got this windowpane that had too much white so I overdyed it.
And I got this:
Which I really like....but I have no idea what to do with it. I think I'm addicted to dyeing.
However, I did do a little felting. I actually got two more squares done.
First, the nodding onion.
I really like the way this turned out.
Then, because Diane egged me on....I did another. The elusive Calypso.
So, after Diane left I measured the king side bed and counted up the squares.....I think I have enough.
So, now what do I do?
True confession...I've not done a quilt before. I really don't have much of an idea of what I do next. So from here on, I'll be winging it. LOL.
So while I sit back and contemplate what the next move will be...or how to join all these pieces together...check out my friend, Jane's blog. She makes lovely felt.
