To answer various questions - mostly why the turquoise hands - well obviously I prepared some dyeing last night: These pictures do the colour no justice - it is a really bright turquoise blue! More like this.....The bowl of wet fabrics...... the first batch out on the line this morning (OK its not very hot but it is quite windy) - they all went in the same colour and were - white cotton, hessian, open weave hessian and net!! even a small piece of polyester satin (which sneaked in) dyed too - although it is deliciously pale!! Today there are various pieces of lace, net cheesecloth, cotton dishcloth and scrim in a new dye pot of the same colour. What am I going to do? Well there is the seed of a new tutu growing in my head!! Just wish I had the fabrics ready NOW NOW NOW !!!!
