happy birthday Sue!

Our group meets about once a month to play and often to celebrate a birthday!
Sue, the birthday girl!
There are presants ...
wonderful food and great company~

our hostess 
We play some too ... this time, it was transfer dyes. The powdered dye is mixed with water and painted onto paper or 'wonder under'.

It is then dried. The little bottles are the transfer dye. 
The paper is placed face down on fabric and pressed with an iron. Be sure to protect your ironing board by sandwiching between parchment. Samples of the finished product to come ... stay tuned.
And then, there is the show and tell. Most of the group has spent the summer ice dying and painting cloth.

It was a beautiful sunny day and a lot of fun!
