More fabrics

I now have enough fabric to start working on my "Brown, sage, blue" Twelve by Twelve piece. No excuse anymore.
I like this one. I'm not sure yet if I'll use it in this quilt, but it's on my design wall and the more I look at it, the more I like it.
Next is a piece of paper on which I've tried to see how my dye mixtures would behave. I used a blue and a brown that I didn't really know yet, and I wanted to see how they would react with the yellow and the black.

In other news, I am patiently (hum!) waiting for THE book to arrive. It's real and it's beautiful, and it's even very cute! Look over here! :-)

I like that green piece, too. All of the colors are lovely. I think I might finish mine today.

You are so clever to try out your dyes like watercolors. I don't think I would have thought to do that.
