Well, the past week was a challenging one. We had a huge storm - the windiest I think I've felt it here and we lost our power for almost 24 hours. Not terribly much fun when the kids are stuck inside with the rain.
So when Sunday dawned bright and clear, I broke out an outside activity that I've wanted to do for a while. I had a little fabric dying kit with a sample of each of three colours and by following the recipes you ended up with 30 fat eighths in graduating colours.
My boy helped me label jars, measure dye and water (good maths lesson) and squish the fabrics around. After some not so patient waiting, lots of rinsing and washing, and a stint of drying, I now have lots of interesting mottley colours. And I've learnt heaps.
Now, how to use them?!
