Fabric Alchemy's Hand Dyes


This doesn't happen very often. In fact, it almost never happens. But I was totally speechless when I opened a package that was on my doorstep last night. This package of hand dyes is from sweet Teresa at http://fabricalchemy.blogspot.com/. I mean, I just stood there with my mouth hanging open!
She's been blogging about her experiments with dying fabric. These fabrics are gorgeous! I have purchased hand dyes from time to time, and none I've ever bought from the pros are as gorgeous as these. I think I see a new career in the making here! Oh, my!!
Over the next couple of weeks I'm going to search for the perfect pattern for them. I hate to even think about cutting into them, but perhaps the biggest compliment we can give a fabric designer/dyer is to actually use them! It's going to be hard to do, though!!
Teresa, thank you so much!! I'm still speechless!
I hope everyone bookmarks her site and visits often. You'll never meet a sweeter, more upbeat lady!

meg, meg, meg! Kim expained the "meg" thing, and all I can say is I can't believe how "meggie" Meg must have been if YOU thought she was meggie. Have you ever considered a job in sales?
