Dyeing (in the most colourful sense)

Find things to dye
Make a batch of dye (from power or concentrate) in a BIG metal pot or sink - I like the feeling of cooking clothes in a big pasta pot
Go crazy stirring your dyeing fabric for about 1 hour 
Rinse off in cold water
Wash fabric in warm soapy water
Leave to dry - and then enjoy however way you wish! These doilies - which are actually tulip red even though they look pink - are going to be embellishing singlets and pillows and turning into mighty fine bags. More on those adventures soon.
