Love Dylon experimenting....

How cool is this!!?? Oh my!  No I have not just bought a MAC!! Ha ha although I would love one!  Ha ha no when we were out yesterday Han put my blog on the MAC in PC World!  I loved it! ha ha just thought I would share that with you all :)


Hello every one....

Almost missed that... its the 1 st of November!  OMG!! Not long until Christmas!.. hmmm 53 days I think! ha ah 

I hope you all had a lovely 'scary' Halloween?  We decided to go out!  You know for a wonder!  As we do!

We started off in Hobbycraft then the garden center then went over to Brighton to ASDA shopping then stopped off at Brighton pier before going home.  A lovely outing!

Here are some photo's of our Halloween day out....

The garden center has a lovely selection of Christmas trees..

 Oh look its us...

Brighton pier is lovely at night with all the lights...

Look what Han won!...

That it is really!

I cannot show you any stitching as I have been busy doing something else... really experimental..

Want to see?


I have been dyeing... using Dylon to dye some fabrics... but used a different technique and really loving the whole experimental thing... you know oooh lets see what happens!

This is what I had...

And look at the colour all mixed up...

Here is what I did...

I have something planned for this wonderful coloured fabric... 

Look my finished colours..

I left one lot of fabric in the dye colour longer than the other... it created wonderful shades of orange.  Love it!

Although I am thinking about taking one or two of these and over dying them with a yellow... to create a new 'sunshine' colour :) .... thinking about it...

I am thrilled with the look of these, I have been meaning to do this for ages... I love experimenting and this was brilliant!

Got to go...

Doing something else really experimental too... yes something totally new to show and share with you all.  But not yet... soon :)

I am thrilled that I have now got over 100 followers.. me gosh!! Its very over whelming to know so many people like me and what to see what I get up to!  Thank You :)

I am planning another giveaway... something really unique and special.. so keep watching as I will tell you all about it very soon :)

Smiles to you all :)

  5. Your dyeing fabrics is interesting !!!

  6. I love the big themed trees. I do like a colour coordinated tree!
    The orange fabric looks great. The third one down with all the white would look good overdyed with yellow. Very summery!
