I've been working away at Medallions - this photo is kinda washed out. The linen is a much richer brown (see Monday's post). I'm very pleased with how this silk thread is working on the my hand dyed linen. Sandra asked me a while back where I got the dye for my linens. I buy everything from Dharma Trading. They do ship internationally. I only use their Fiber Reactive Procion Dyes. Several years ago, I purchased their hand dyed fabric starter set - it contained everything I needed to get going. I do a low water immersion method of dyeing and the book contained in the kit tells all about it. It's really easy and super fun to make your own hand dyed linens.
