Dyeing with Cheryll

Yesterday Cheryll and I met up at Thorpe and coin Newcastle to attend a dyeing workshop with
Tracey McNicoll

We had an absolute ball.... Like two giggling school girls





We started with this white piece of fabric which we had to rip into four pieces.....




Then we choose our colours carefully adding a bit of this colour and a bit of that colour and then we popped our fabric into the yogurt containers.....,




Cheryll squishing and wishing

then we had a bit of show and tell whilst our fabrics got coloured.......






Tracey made this amazing quilt and many others from her hand dyed fabrics




Even the back was hand dyed and patterned using stamps




Not much is safe in Tracey's house from the sound of it,she loves dyeing all sorts of things, i love her hand dyed threads.....



After rinsing our fabrics we lunched whilst they dried.....

and then tahhh dahhh




Cheryll and I decided early in the day we would split our fabrics 50/50

So this is the bunch of scruminess we ended up with....




Then we got to play with the stamps.... Not many photos here I was much too busy stamping......
And much too messy for handling a camera (phone)




Then it was time to get Victoria out and it was all systems sew......

I did nt finish my book cover




This is what our books Should look like.....

It was a fabulous day, I had so much fun, Cheryll and I had a total ball

I hope your hands are working on a project that you love
