Meetup | July Goals

I’ve had a busy month with LOTS of family stuff! The Pokorny low brass festival that Hubby organizes and participates in each year is half over today. I had to play in the Sunday concert, I am SO glad that’s over, and I’ll have extra running around to do and concerts to attend each night, and then Friday I’ve got to do a BUNCH of cooking as we host a farewell dinner. After that, though, we are actually in Summer Vacation mode!!! WOOHOO!

July Goals

I’ve got a class to teach in July, and there’s an idea brewing in the back of my mind to submit to Modern Patchwork, but besides that it’s All Dyeing 104, All the time!!! I’ve back burnered a couple of things that I haven’t gotten around to for awhile now, but I’m keeping them there so I remember them once Dyeing 104 is done! 🙂 I’ve got a quilt to finish for Liam, with a firm deadline of August 20, when we take him to college; but since all the blocks are made, I know it won’t take me more than a couple of days to get it finished, so again, I should be able to do that once Dyeing 104 is launched!

You heard it here first: I’m giving myself permission to ease up on blogging until Dyeing 104 is launched!!! 

Because people need to be able to learn to dye lucious things like this:

  1. Just bought your Dyeing to Stitch- video through Interweave. Loved your techniques. Now want to go on and take Controlling Color. Love the fact that you are a Science person and explain that aspect of the dyeing process. Have been dyeing for about a year and your process is much easier than what I have been doing. Just need to find the time to do Controlling Color, but very soon.

    1. Hi Suzanne!

      I’m so glad you enjoyed Dyeing to Stitch! That was the start of me sharing my dyeing process with the world. I thought that I was the ONLY one out there who approached dyeing scientifically, and was gratified to learn that there are other people out there who want more control in their dyeing! Happy day!

      I’m having a 25% off special on all my online dyeing classes right now, today’s the last day. You can read more about it here:
