I finally rinsed all my threads out. I love the colors. What am I going to do with them? I am sure I will find a project for them soon. We did some resist dyeing with soy wax. I love how they turned out!

I was downloading pictures before I realized that I forgot to take any of my finished product... Oh well.
The local library held a dyeing workshop and I do have a few things to show. These pictures are from experimenting with natural products to see how they dye fabric. We used beets, blueberries, coffee, tea, cinnamon...Fun stuff.

I have been trying to stay focused and work a little each day on the Townhouse. I am really hoping to get it done soon. My problem is that I bought Echoes of Elizabeth Needle case and I am itching to get started on that.
I must finish a project before I start a new one. I will finish a project before I start a new one.

The Mississippi River Valley Chapter of EGA had Phyllis Maurer teach us Ukraninian Nyzynka embroidery for our yearly workshop. I, of course, could not attend the class, but I did get a kit and managed to get the bookmark done while on vacation. It is supposed to be reversable, but I am not that good. This is a picture of the back.
