Dyeing day

Yesterday I had a lovely time dyeing linen and cotton with Procion dyes and dyeing woollen threads, pieces of blanket and silk in a microwave with acid dyes. Super fun, and the reds are still rinsing in the washing machine! Dye days at Helen Howes workshop are great, no mess in your own kitchen!

Today I went back to the machine embroidery class in Norwich and we made a panel with strips of silk  and machine stitches. They could be made into a pouch for a mobile phone, but I made mine into another book wrap.
