Rags and Rox.

My friend Roxanne from The Quilters Alley and I got together for a day of Indigo dyeing. She also surprised me with a batch of black walnut dye that she had brewed up. A random piece from golden rod found it's way in and also we fooled around with some Poke weed dye I made. The pokeweed color was an amazing magenta, but not colorfast when washed. It would work for painting, but I imagine it would fade eventually.These are the results.We had so much fun, we plan to get together on Fridays when we can to experiment with dyeing and printing our own fabrics.
