Beautiful patches, wow. Love the rust dyeing. How is that turmeric fabric GREEN?!
The black and white is awesome contrast, the weaving and organic stitches are very cool too.

It *is* rust dye, from a giant lag bolt I found.  Actually, the two turquoise strips are also rust dyed, with some washers, then a dip in a sky blue bath.

The yellow and green fabric started out as an experiment with turmeric.  I wasn't prepared for how....VIVID it would be.  (I shouldn't have been surprised; I think turmeric is what they use to make cheap mustard that high voltage color!)

So I wadded and folded and tied it, and ran it thru the same sky blue bath, thinking it would tone it down a bit.  Instead, it immediately turned an intense Kelly green!  But I really liked the way the green created a wrinkly looking pattern, even after I ironed the cloth.

I received my amazing parcel from Abbeeroad! 2 stunning indigo patches



I love the strong colour scheme, and the strength of the line - I keep noticing little details like this section that's almost like cross hatching


And... Crafted extras!

A fat quarter of abbee's iconic dyed fabric - and a beautiful wood burned fridge magnet

Thank you Abbee!!

I LOVE the second swatch! The composition is utter perfection. It's like a beautiful abstract poppy, with bands of blue.

Any chance there are progress shots? I would love to see the order and the layers.

Also...this girl really hopes swappers post individual threads.

Awesome - I just did my first experiments with rust dyeing - love it! I will have to try the overdye too. The turmeric is also super cool.

Yay! I definitely didn't match your level of spoilage, but I'm glad you like it all anyway, noodle!

The circle one just kind of happened. I don't really have progress shots...sorry Joyful! Thanks for the comments guys - from such a talented group they mean a lot! Cheesy

This has been such a wonderful gallery and one of my new favorite swaps. I'm glad we have a few more packages to view before it's over!

Ireceived a very interesting interpretation from craftylittlemonkey, which needed a little assembly before display:









Plus this adorable textural moth!



Thank you so much, crafty!   Kiss

I really really love all the types of creativity there are!
