Now, I started this whole process off getting out the my dye books and notes - looking over past blog entries - looking for new info on the subject - and one thing hit me. . . . I've been way too anal about the whole process.
Remembering the results that I've achieved over the years, the ones I liked the best were the ones that were just sorta thrown together. I mean lots of times, I've carefully followed a dye formula measuring this and stirring together that and the results were pretty predictable and boring.
Boy was it easier working in my studio rather than my front porch sitting on a bucket. Better for my allergies too! The colors I chose to work was - The strongest orange, golden yellow, mixing blue, forest green, avocado green, grape, and red. I folded a bunch of them and batched them in baggies and I scrunched a bunch and put them in cups. All of them have multiple colors.
I know that Elizabeth is going to have us dye up 10 yds at Arrowmont so I'm not too worried that I won't have enough solids this year. Hmmmm - I would like to try some pole dyeing though - also I need to get more torquoise and yellow because I want to dye up some colors for the next in my cross series.
Soooo - we'll see tomorrow where this Seredipity session has led me - hopefully - with prayer - it will be some really cool results!
