recipe for a rainy Bank Holiday

Locate left over Procion dyes in the Big Shed

Gather cloth from the box of dyeing failures.
Some very pale and others dunked in thoix
to remove dyeing 'mistakes'

Make up soda ash

Soak cloth and apply dye

Batch over night  Rinse well, wash, dry and  iron

Make a cup of coffee and enjoy the results

It's still pouring with rain but I am smiling

three of the bigger pieces
and there is a shoebox of colourful bits

the colours are rich and strong, not bad
considering the made up dyes have
been stored for at least three weeks
