Every year for the past few years I have dyed fabric, and it has become one of my favorite weeks of the year. I love the vibrant hues. I love how adding a little water makes beautiful spring tones or how adding black makes rich fall colors. I love seeing how the colors mix together to become something new. I love changing up my primary colors from bright lemon yellow to a deeper daffodil and seeing the colors that unfold. I marvel in God's brilliance in using 3 colors to make up a whole spectrum.

Here is the finished product.  The colors I used for each set are under the pictures. It is interesting to see what each combination holds. My favorites have always been the brighter hues, but I always like to do at least a set or two in the warmer tones. You never know when that southwest vibe will be just the ticket!!
