Labor Day

Friday afternoon I got in the mood to dye some fabric. I even had about 6 yards of white cotton sitting in the closet - so I threw it in the washer and got started setting up the stuff in the garage. It was then that I realized that I had no soda ash - so everything got put on hold. Yesterday Ian and I made a Walmart run and found some soda ash (sodium carbonate) in the pool supply section.

Today Ian and I got an early start, before the heat set in. Ian was being very helpful! I teased him that next time I was going to do this while he was at school - because he kept insisting on doing the fun parts!

Here are the fruits of our labor all spread out on the lawn to dry. This picture is probably a little depressing to Nina - lots of blues and no ORANGE! I have a specific project in mind and needed more blues and greens.

Hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend!

The blues look delightful! And I love the shadow of the photographer. Looks like she's giving the A-OK sign. ;-)

I saw that shadow, too! What fun you must have had. The colors are so nice and saturated. Love you!
