Digging around looking for some other means to manipulate the challenge fabric, I came across some very old Putman brown dye. I wasn't even sure it would work since the package was pretty hard. When I first stirred it, it looked more purple than brown. However, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Success! I replaced the brown I was going to use with the dyed brown fabric.
After seeing Rayna's dye job, I feel I was definitely not adventuresome enough. Do check it out! I want some! Sherrie is tea dyeing. Marti got a great pink with Pebeo Setacolor transparent paint. I am certainly in with some great company!
I am also happy to report that Gail Pierce has joined the challenge. There are now 14 people participating! I may get rid of (oops share) all this fabric yet! It's off to the post office before the really nasty weather that is suppose to hit here happens and then make into the studio.
