Getting stuff done

My work in progress has progressed this week - managed to get the pieces of blanket dyed.

The whole thing was really interesting. I used Dylon multipurpose, Madonna Blue and Jungle Green. The blue was a much less strong pigment than the green, but dyed more evenly. I mixed the two dye baths together for the final bit of blanket, but the green was so fierce that adding the blue to it didn't seem to make much difference.

I plan to use some of this for another pair of booties and maybe a softie or two.

The breadmaker is being put through its paces. I've done a sunflower seed loaf and a standard white so far. Oh, and this one, we call it alien life form bread.

Good work Miss Ali! And what is that thing growing in that loaf? I'm beginning to worry about you...

Good job on the dyed blanket too. What are you planning to make with them?
