Dyeing Day

Barb Seils and I decided to try the some dyeing the "Marcia Murphy" way, following the tutorial on her blog (

We decided to practice first on a piece of cotton dyer's cloth. Barb is applying some blue over the fuschia.

Marcia is squeezing out the excess dye prior to laying the fabric out to dry.

Marcia is applying turquoise and intense blue to a 4-yard piece of linen\rayon. This was followed by applying fuschia and then some navy.

Barb works on another 4-yard piece of the linen\rayon. She applied blues and yellow and a splash of orange.

We're anxious to see the pieces after they're washed out and are already planning to do some more!
