This 'n' That

I have been doing a little bit of this and that today.  Earlier in the day I decided to use some pre-mixed fabric dye.  I soaked some fabrics in soda ash solution in prep for dyeing.   Here is that fabric in the various containers soaking up the dye.
The idea is for this to fade from blue to purple to fuchsia to red. 
I did layered color and drizzled dye on these.  Who knows what will happen!
Left: Three blues with some green mixture squirted on various areas.
Right:  Some "ugly" fabric that I am overdyeing with all of the colors I used above. 
I hope that some of these turn out amazing and that the others are at least useable.

Later in the day, I realized that I needed to actually use some of my hand-dyed fabric.  I cut pieces to make "four at a time flying geese."  I made two sets and then put them into these two blocks.
Once finished, I realized that the contrast on these is very weak.  Oh well!  I will use them with others that have great contrast and they will hopefully look okay in the final quilt.

I think my muse has gone to Tahiti without me.  If you see her, please send her home.

When I have a day full of "this and that" crafting (which is often!) I rarely get around to actually blogging about it. Impressive that you were able to accomplish all that and still have time to blog about it too. And you say you did this while your muse was AWOL? Hmm, maybe she/he sent in a substitute the?
