Dyed in Ojai

I spent a fabulous day of dyeing with my Fibervision buddies, Susan Italo, Lora Martin, Mary Norton, and Linda Cassirer. I hope you enjoy looking at these beauties as much as I enjoyed making them. Look at this beautiful piece, I think it's my favorite. It's royal blue and turquoise with a touch of fuscia.
We went to Susan's house in Ojai (shhh, don't tell her husband that we made a mess while he was gone)! No . . . I think this one may be my favorite. Doesn't it look like a beautiful piece of agate?We had a great time dyeing, eating and drinking and I came away with some gorgeous fabric.
I've been trying very hard to resist the temptation of buying yet another set of supplies (I really mean dye). But look at the results. How will I ever resist the temptation?Each photo represents a very small section of the fabric. I didn't look for my favorite section, I randomly opened it and took a photo.They are all to beautiful. I feel myself becoming very, very weak. HELP!I'm a very good organizer, but I'm afraid there isn't any room for anything else. My studio is overflowing with wonderful stuff. I Love it all and couldn't possibly part with anything, so cleaning the studio again is not an option.

Judy, these are gorgeous! Not a bad one in the lot. It is so much fun to iron these for the first time and get a really good look at what you've gotten.

Gorgeous, gorgeous fabrics!! Wow! I agree that ironing them is probably the best part. It's when you really get to see for the first time just exactly what you've got! I love Ojai too, it's a wonderful little town!
