Trying new colours

A mini dyeing session was today's main activity. After seeing some interesting textures created by loosely-woven cloth last week, I tried dyeing some cotton muslin - the type that is used by cooks to sieve jellies. It is gorgeously soft and creases beautifully. I imagine it gathered and perhaps overlaid with sheers.

With the exception of the fuchsia, the colours weren't as intense as I wanted, so I'll amend my recipes and dye some more next week.
