Hand Dyed Fibers

 How do you spend your free time? A couple of friends had a series of marathon dyeing sessions this summer and autumn; fabrics, T shirts, old linens, ends of lace, embroidery fibers---anything that could be colored or re-colored was fair game. Winding up dyed and washed skeins of floss and perle cotton, admiring the color variations as it slides through your fingers, is an immensely satisfying activity. We marveled at the colors and textures when Suzanne showed us her completed embroidery fibers.  It may be gray and icy outside, but she has her own personal rainbow in a box, ready for stitching.
