As you know if you've been following my blog, I've been having fun exploring snow dyeing lately. Along with some fabric, I've been dyeing crazy amounts of cotton threads to use in my hand stitching. I am totally in love with variegated hand dyed threads! I make skeins of the threads for the purpose of dyeing it, but I find it easier to store and work with if I take the time to wrap it on the little cards usually used for embroidery floss. This way, I can store them in my plastic, colour coded DMC floss boxes along with the floss and other hand stitching threads.
Without babbling on any more, let me just show you my newly dyed stash:
I've got an idea brewing in my head for a piece I want to start that will involve crazy amounts of hand stitch with my new stash of fabrics and threads, both from this last little batch and from the results of last summer's dyeing fun.
Kit Lang does some incredible art, often using painted paper towel. Well Kit, here are all the paper towels that got dyed in the clean up or thread dyeing process. You've inspired me to try to do something with it...I don't know what yet, but something!
