Too Blue to be True!

 So I had this idea you see, for a blue quilt...and as I found a great white cotton sheet in the Chraity shop, as well as some scraps in my trunk, I thought...I fancy a dying day...so I did!

Here we have the high-falutin method of dying sections of sheet different depths of colour:-
 Here we have the cold dye bucket method...and yes, the bucket was blue to begin with:-
 Here we have the poor sheet which wished it had never left the Charity Shop in my company:-
And not to be outdone by a mere sheet...one blue-polka-dotted kettle!!
True Blue, what-ho!!

Ah, that's the trouble with dying, the dye refuses to be kept under control. You've spurred me on though, I've been meaning to do some dying for ages and this week the weather might just be right for it, so I can do it outside. Have you ever tried dying in the microwave, it works really well.

I love those blues, very soothing and oceanlike :). Also, I'm a big fan of tie-dye.
