Dyeing is more Fun

Well! So much for thinking that job would take me a couple of days. I didn't realize how much stuff I have brought into my house in the last few years. All with good intentions of course. (You know what they say"the road to hell is paved with good intentions")
That is what happens when your children move out, you fill up their rooms with stuff so you don't notice them gone.
I got Geoff to take eight boxes and a few baskets of very desirable fabric back to the shop and quite a few more coming, also taken a large amount of old china as well, and much more to come.
I got Geoff to do it because I know I would have been grabbing this and that back.
If anyone is interested you better be quick before I change my mind on the best pieces.
Yesterday when I was so so sick of this cleaning project I decided to do some dyeing. Some worked some didn't.
I was really happy with results. It was interesting how different everything turned out when I used the same dye bath. Definitely more fun.
Here are the photo's of what I did, and what I left (still there)
I know what they mean when they say it took a month of Sunday's.


  1. Oh MY! You have been productive!! Feel good?

  2. Wow! You were ruthless, eight bags?! Well done.
