The last week of my basic dyeing for quilters is a test, in a sense, of what we have learned about mixing dyes. We are to pick a photo that is a color inspiration for us and then determine what the colors are. I used Photoshop Elements to help with the process. I have always loved the colors in this photo that I took on a trip to Seattle. I love the colors of this outdoor furniture display.
Here are the colors that I pulled out.
Now, I have to go through my stash of hand-dyes to see what matches I have. Then, I will mix up some dyes and try to match the rest. I think this is going to be fun.
I had a busy few days and now I am paying for it. On Friday, my iPad died and then came back to life, but it has been working very slowly and has given me lots of problems. We went to the Apple store and I bought a new one. Wow, what a difference. I love the retina display and of course it is very zippy.
On Friday night, we went to a fun Mardi Gras cabaret at Trinity which was a fund raiser for the choir’s trip to England and France next year. They did an array of fun show tunes.
Last night, we went to the symphony and I did too much walking and am paying for it today. I can barely move, again. I only had a slight meltdown and I enjoyed watching the superbowl and especially the half-time show. And, I am getting closer to the fix for my knee.
