Another Report from My Dyecation

It's been a labour-intensive day today, and I'm pretty knackered, so I'll just illustrate part of my day with a few images and words, and return with more images and text tomorrow or in a couple of days.

Setting up my work space for mixing dyes

Protecting myself as well

Primary colours mixed and ready to use
(lemon yellow, fuchsia and turquoise)

Sixteen ice cream tubs of yummy fabrics batching away. 

Four of the tubs contain 'mystery fabric', i.e. fabrics that are coloured with leftover dye. Now I have to wait patiently until tomorrow before I can rinse them out.

See you again soon! - Annika


  1. Vilket jobb ! Men det ser roligt ut.

  2. Waiting is the hardest part! I usually do not like to iron, but after the wash out, I love to see the wonderful designs in the cloth. Have fun!

  3. Oooh the colors look yummy! Did you do the technique where you add one at a time to the dye and get a range of values without mixing? I love that one.

  4. An illustrated report is coming soon. I was greeted by a rainbow when I got up this morning! :D
