And on it goes.....

While working on my Gee type quilt, I was side tracked into playing with a small format of similar colored fabrics and  I needed the right shade of fabric for some borders for this project. So, off I go to the basement to dye some fabric in a length I could use and while I had the dye out, I decided to dye floss.  I know, what do the two things have to do with each other???  I just wanted to play in the dye pots instead of sewing

 I had a great time combining the colors and have even managed to get some #5 floss dyed. The only bad part is everything else has come to a screeching halt while I wrap and dye yet more floss! You never know when you will need 30 skeins of dyed thread to use on your quilt.  Have to be prepared.  I even made a list of colors I still need to try! Ok, maybe not need, but I sure want to try making  them .

 Sometimes you just have to go with what makes you happy. Dying threads is very addicting and I hope not to stop anytime soon!
