It’s been so so much work hand dyeing a color wheel for a personal project. I need twelve steps on the wheel, along with a lighter value and a shaded/greyed tone for each hue. It’s slowly coming together. This is what I’ve accomplished so far:

The yellow is the trickiest because the other dyes just want to take over. I definitely need to redo the grey-yellow one because it’s just too red. But I am pretty happy with what I’ve done.

Little by Little

Slowly I am getting back to dyeing. Little by little. It has been extremely busy and the next quilt show is so close. I am so ready to have a break. My creativity just comes more easily when I do not have that pressure looming overhead. So until then I have little to share. One piece I have dyed:

I like this because it’s such a nice color. I find looking into dyed patches similar to spotting shapes in clouds. I see a beetle in the teal above.

So hopefully soon I’ll have something more substantial to post. Until then I dye!
