Home Made Peach Pie and Hand Dyed Cloth

Dyed cloth hanging on the 'ole clothesline (that I really do use for clothes, by the way).

I started dyeing fabric this summer for the first time. At one point - when I realized I wasn't using dyes but liquid, concentrated fabric paint (ok, have to like that I fessed up) and was having less than stellar (to say the least) results, I told my husband that I would win the dyeing cloth battle.
The photos above are only a sample of the many, many pieces I created today. As I told my Studio 33 artist friends "I'm in love".
And then, because it seemed like a good idea since the 1/2 bushel of peaches were ripe I made a peach pie. This lovely thing with the heavenly smell could be dinner if my husband person weren't so intent on having protein with the night meal.
A very good day was had by all.

Your fabric is beautiful- I'm not clear, is it dyed or painted? Either way, I love it.

And I could smell the peach pie all the way out here in Utah. Yum.

All of this cloth was dyed with procion colors. Awhile back I tried dying cloth with concentrated fabric paints - not on purpose - just because I didn't know what I was doing!

ok, i gotta couple of things to say here.

1. she does actually use the clothesline. i'm obsessed with using my clothe's dryer because i was raised with line-hung laundry.

2. that fabric is beautiful. i wouldn't mind getting something in the mail made out of it.

3. peach pie?!! i'm jealous. i think i need to visit my mom.
