Fun days with friends

I've had the most wonderful few days.....

....chatting, planning.....

...and dyeing in the sun....

...with Laura from Colourcraft....

...who arrived on Sunday with a load of Procion dye bottles that simply HAD to be used up!!

We dyed backgrounds first.....




...then overdyed in plastic containers...




...which gave us both a right-royal-pile of scrummy cloth to play with!!

So, this morning, I've skinned my Markal Paintstiks and started playing with rubbing plates.





I have 'plans' for these ;-)

...and while fiddling with another bit of the 'plan'...

....my ironing paper towel ended up like this.




Now how many folk can have such wild ideas for bits of stuff that normally would end up in the rubbish bin?

Oh! I feel like such a lucky lady.......

....even though my fingers are forty different shades of all-sorts right now! :-)

Fantastic colours, (I know what you mean about the coloured fingers- mine are just about coming back to normal colour after four days of scrubbing)

Sounds wonderful!! And I'm sure while dying all sorts of imaginative ideas came about.
