Rip, rip, rip
Well, I had hoped to be dying fabric by today. I'm close but not yet....Actually, in the past I have always cut and scoured just the amount of fabric I needed but, I didn't have the room I have now. I got out the bolt of silk I had and tore 14 yards. I scoured it yesterday and dried it today. I put the bolt back. Today I took out my bolt of sateen from Testfabrics and just tore it all into 1 yard pieces (I only had 10 metres). Then I thought....why don't I just do all the fabric I have for dyeing?? So, next was the 50 m of broadcloth, then the rest of the silk. I have a big pile of fabric on the floor in the hall outside the laundry room waiting to be scoured. I did get two more loads washed and dried and a third load washed...to be dried tomorrow.

Tomorrow I will also get my soda ash bath ready (I have a 5 gallon bucket with a lid from Dharma just waiting), finish scouring and drying the fabric (I hope) so Thursday.....MAYBE.....I can do some dyeing. Oh, and my friend's son is coming over Thursday too so he can put together all my shelving units (4 in the dye studio and 2 in the garage) and my two Rubbermaid cabinets....so I can put stuff away.

Oh, and I bought 6- 2' x 8' foam sheets and some construction glue so I will get Kevin to help me glue those up in the studio too.

Pictures to follow.

    Sounds like you have your hands full! I do the same thing though. I figure if I'm going to get out the mess, I might as well blow out as much as possible! Happy dyeing!

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
