A playday with two friends, using Procion MX cold water dyes produced many delights for each of us. Here are two that came from my folding and twisting.

Time out for me from creative labours Has been a result of Dungog’s summertime humidity & 30+ degree temperatures. Air conditioning & knitting (socks) has been creating a mood of quiet contemplation.
This morning’s sunrise was quietly meditative with beams of sunshine falling on the earth against a foggy backdrop. These colours of our backyard are glorious.

Hand-dyed cotton yarn
A few bundles of white cotton yarn were hand-dyed using Procion MX dyes.
Starting with using straight colours was followed by mixing different colour combinations to create earthy tones. Using a size 13 Chenille needle, these thick yarns will be easily stitched into projects.
Perhaps these yarns will be incorporated into the Secret Santa gift that I will make for a group I belong to, the “Daughters on Dowling”. A very creative group who share a love of embroidery, traditional and contemporary.
