OOOH! Pretty!

I don't have any pictures yet, but I hope to soon.

I've spent today dyeing my first fabric. :) And to be honest, I am probably way more proud of the pieces than they deserve. LOL

My mom taught me how to do it and I have ended up with a total of six pieces. One of them I REALLY like.

We started out with blue for two pieces, then I added purple to it and dyed two more. I also used that color over the top of one of the blue pieces. I didn't leave it in the dye very long, so there is only a hint of purple it. For the last two pieces I added black to the purple. Those two are my favorites.

Hopefully, I'll be able to post some pictures either tomorrow or Friday.

I also tried dyeing a couple of skeins of floss. They aren't dry yet, so I am not sure how they are going to look. They are both light in color. I should have left them in the dye for a longer period of time. :( We'll see. :D

Everything else on the vacation front is good except for the weather. Things here are warm, but overcast and rainy. Even had some tornado watches today. And tomorrow is a wind advisory...my favorite. :( Thankfully Mom is going to drive on our road trip. I can't stand driving in the wind. Anything!!! but that.
