On Monday we had a 'dye party' in Margie's backyard and it was magical.
Margie, Sonia, Arounna and Barbara transformed their fabric
using natural dyes while I made them my husband Manolo's famous guacamole.
I'll post the recipe soon!
Read more about our fun filled day here and here.

Ummm--I think I'd like that corn recipe too. :) Sounds & looks like such fun, that party! I just dyed some really expensive bed sheets I bought years ago for a kid's room (what was I thinking?!). They were apricot color and I dyed them a dark, rich purple with a bunch of good ole fashioned Rit dye. I LOVE them! It's really fun to transform something so easily.

Looks great. I saw some beautiful embroidered doilies the other day in an op shop for $2 each. I didn't buy them as they all had a few rust marks on them. When I got home I thought "I should have bought them and dyed them"!

What are you going to do with your pieces?

I love the hand dyeing process; it magical somehow. Seeing your beautiful fabrics on the line shows them off so nicely!

Shades of 1967! This makes me want to run right out and tie-dye something! Fun.

I love the 3rd photo, it conveys a sense of magic with that lens refraction that looks like a bubble and the way you can see the leaves through the fabric. Gorgeous.

Oh wow - I'd love to have gone to your dye party ! I love seeing how fabric is transformed by colours. What kind of natural dye did you use - I can only find the non natural kind here.
