I am dyeing to tell you~~

Look what Becky SC has sent me!!! When I got in from errands today, I had a wonderful package in the mail...Becky made this cute ornament with a darling red bird (I LOVE reds...), a mitten with specialty stitches strewn throughout and these cute snowflake charms! All the overdyes look so great together and as you know, Becky is a master at not only stitching but finishing as well....I feel so honored to have recieved this beautiful ornament from you Becky!

Also, today I made a little road trip to Lynne's Outlet in Siler City NC (no blog or website...).. I had read on another bloggers post that she had ran across this fabric shop....So, since I am totally feeling house bound from all the nasty weather, I decided to make the trip. If you ever need lace, trims, buttons, ribbons, quilting fabric, evenweave by the yard or Aida by the yard... you need to come to Siler City NC and visit Lynne! I bought some creme evenweave and am going to coffee dye per Vonna's tutorial. I haven't ever done any coffee/tea dyeing but my friend Karen SC encouraged me to go for it!.....So, I will keep you posted on my experiment! I am feeling adventurous!

Here's hoping everyone is having a good weekend...For all my blogging friends that are socked in due to bad weather, hang in there...The skies have opened up some in NC so lets hope the worst part of winter is passing on by~~~~Love and stitches everyone~~~ Faye

You are a lucky girl! That is a sweet little finish from Becky.

Wow! That place in Silve City sounds fab - too bad it's a bit far for me!

What a beauty you received from Becky, Faye. I know you will treasure it!

Glad to hear you've survived the snow storm! What a lovely surprise and I agree with you that it's gorgeous.

I can't wait to hear about your tea/coffee dyeing experiences!

JOLENE said...

How sweet! I can see why you're so excited Faye. Sounds like you had a fun time at the fabric shop.

Jennifer said...

Lovely gift and very detailed....gorgeous!

I brake for fabric shops!!! LOL

Coffee and tea dye is so much fun, you'll be addicted! I don't always dye my linen but sometimes I do, usually with coffee. I've yet to mix the coffee and tea together but I have heard that the effect is pretty.

That Becky is a sweetheart, isn't she? I just love that little pillow. I'll be watching for pictures of your dyeing experiment. I have had some success in that area and hope you do too!

Such a great gift to receive Faye! Becky is really a sweetheart, isn't she. I'll be watching for your dyed pieces. I followed Vonna's directions, and love how my fabric came out!!

I pulled up the old GoogleMap to see where Siler City is... One of these days I'll have to plan a weekend trip over that way! Thanks for the pep talk, and the tip about JoAnn's! There isn't one around here anymore, so will have to check online.

Looks like you got the perfect gift. Very cute.

The great thing about coffee/tea dyeing is that you get to do it just like you want. It's fun and easy.

Siobhan said...

What a cute little gift! Good luck with the fabric dyeing. I have done the dunk in coffee and/or tea thing, but never baked and basted thing thing that Vonna does. I'm anxious to see your results!
