A sunny day

I took advantage of yesterday sunshine to dye fabric for my next Twelve by Twelve piece. The theme is "Mythology". I know more or less what I want to do, but I was missing some fabric.
I already had a little dyeing session a few days ago but I wasn't happy with the outcome. The colours were not deep enough. I think it was too cold inside and outside.

Yesterday was just fine and this time I'm quite pleased with the results...
Now, I just have to find some quiet time to sketch out my ideas and start sewing.

A few weeks ago, little GD did this little piece...

and I worked on my new shirt, using the Misti Liberty fabric that I bought last year in London.
I still have to sew the sleeves and find matching buttons. But first, I must concentrate on that Mythology quilt!

Isn’t it a shame we have no Summer at all?

What a fun piece, made by your Granddaughter!

I love the blue/grey dyed fabric, is it done in a shibori technique? And the red/orange is gorgeous!!

Nice dyeing! I've been wanting to do the same thing. I'm looking forward to seeing your mythology quilt.
