I've Been RAK'd, Finishes, My First Dye Job

Hello Everyone,  Thank you for coming to my blog!  So much to tell you all. 

First and most importantly I have been RAK'd!  I want to thank
Helen
Pam
and Pamela

I want you to know I am paying it forward also. 

Second my facebook group is taking off.  Please come join us http://www.facebook.com/groups/210565125666090/

Third I have two finishes to share and two frame jobs.  They are a bit wonky, but I love them anyway...


This I made for my mom and just finished it and framed it:



I wanted to keep it but I am not a mom....lol...plus i made it for her while she was in the hospital last week.

This one is the cat I made before and just framed:
I just finished this one, as well:

I did it on aida, i tried it on the linen and just couldnt take it.  I have the chart still and the backing and the beads and string to sew it up, it's supposed to be a pin cushion, but I do not have the linen, i killed that, or the threads, i used those up, but I am giving the stuff that is left away, first who says they want it gets it.

Last but not least....I dyed my own fabric.  I am going to use it with Thine is the Trick and the Treat (Yes I finally got it!!!!!!  I am so happy!!!!) 

I used tea bags.  It has the tye dyed look i wanted.  I am so happy with how it came out.  Excuse the mess in the background! 

Well I hope everyone is doing well.  I look forward to reading your blogs!!

Much Love,
Jenn

Hi Jenn, I'd love to have that piece of linen! Your dye job looks fun. You are daring to try something new! I like your cute finishes with the fabric backing.

SoCal Debbie said...

Oops, I had to read it again. Didn't realize you KILLED the linen and all you have left is the beads and stuff. You should save it for another small project!

I agree with SoCal Debbie but if u still don't want them, I wouldn't mind if SoCal Debbie doesn't want them. LOL Sorry to hear about what had happened to your project.

I just love your works!
I havetried a bit dyeing past weeks myself too. Need to put pics in my blog. Some was with tea and some with redcurrant juice (homemade), the juice gave a lovely pink color.

You've been busy! And the dye job is to die for! You did a fabulous job on it Jenn! I am going to look for fabric next weekend in LA at the garment district. I have been itching to dye fabric. I hand paint yarn right now. I love it!
