Yesterday morning at 7 am, for the first time ever, I dyed some fabric!!! It was great and I loved the result. But I'm not showing you lot yet! I can feel an urge to dye some more. I have now realised that there is no need to fear not having just the right colour. It is there, I just have to dye it myself. What a great revelation that is! Something I'm sure a lot of you already know about.
The rest of the day was a major push to finish Arabesque. This morning I did the last 5 lines of background quilting and washed it. It is now drying flat on a pile of towels and will then be bound.
I looked at a couple of other projects and started the embroidery from the Stitch magazine I am doing in tandem with Elsa. I also have the Little Fellas working hard on the next stage of a project using the stuff I dyed.
I then realised I was having pains in the chest from being hunched over for too long so we went for a lovely drive in Gwen, the '79 SL with the top down out through Shaftesbury on through over the Somerset border and in a large loop back to home. It was glorious! Just the right thing to blow away the cobwebs and end a weekend in sunshine.
The garden is moving on a bit now and I loved the colour of these tulips about to open so thought I would share them.
And what do you think of these blousey show offs! I don't even remember buying tulips that looked like these!!
