Green and blue

I need some green fabric for my little landscape quilts. So this afternoon, on top of doing some paperwork, watching tennis on TV, and reading the Tales of the Otori, I managed to have a small dyeing session.
Here are some of my results:
And also some light blue for the sky:
I still need a plain and somewhat darker green, and also some brown I think. This will be for tomorrow.
And here are all the fabrics, washed and ironed...

Oh these are lovely Francoise - what type of dyes do you use? I usually use the Procion ones.

Looks like you got lots done in your short dyeing session! Love the deep greens - I find it really hard to get rich, deep shades - do you use black?

These are really lovely. It's so rewarding when you have a good dyeing day!

Dyed fabric is the only thing I like ironing! I've just had a major dye weekend, but my camera batteries have faded and need recharging. There is only 3 photos on my blog, but more to come.
