oh, mythodology would be quite a challenge! And I love rainforest or desert as well!

As I hinted earlier, you could pretty much use any country for this as well, some interesting ones might be Japan, France, UK, Cuba, India, Australia....

Oh there are so many possibilities!

I would think more of themes based on dye methods, ie

-Koolaid single packs
-make your own blend (anything goes)
-wiltons food coloring
-Easter egg dye
-Jacquard Acid Dyes

This way we will learn to use new dyes together and see how they differ from eachother.

Dye methods would be a good idea. We could combine it with a theme, like "Spring inspired using only kool aid"

I like making stuff. Rumor has it, I'm an elf. Like a Santa Elf, not one of those elegant LOTR types.  Mostly because I compulsively craft and partially because I have green shoes.

Time for a new Dye Along soon? I've been looking forward to participating, but since food dyes like Wilton's are kind of hard to get here I had to pass on the last one Sad

I like both themes and dye methods. But I think dye methods should be a little more general. Like 'food dyes', 'acid dyes', 'dye plant fibres', 'hand painting'. And so on. That way you can use whatever is easy to get for you. Dye alongs with different kinds of resist dyeing would be cool too Smiley
