Sun Dyeing in full swing now!


I have been getting some WONDERFUL weather conditions for Sun Dyeing over the last few weeks.  It was a slow start in my area due to the late frost that killed the few plants struggling to come up earlier in the spring but now things have turned around and my gardens are in full bloom.  I have MANY shows to get ready for this summer (check out my upcoming shows tab) and the Sun Dyeing is moving right along.  Here are a few designs I have been working on as well as my palette of colours that I chose one morning to inspire me!  My life is very colourful these days!
