Weekly Photo Challenge – Endurance

Originally posted on Chittle Chattle:

I know that many of you are aware that I dye. In fact, here are some fabrics that I have been dyeing just this week!

There is an element of endurance involved in the dyeing, nothing is instant, taking time improves not only the colours but also the effects.

My subject of the Weekly Photo Challenge, however, is none of the above! The subject is some of the vital equipment that I cannot do without!


After many months of searching, I have finally found rubber gloves that don’t disintegrate after just two days of use! Not only do they last…… they also fit the length of my fingers which mean that I can manipulate the fabric and threads within the dye!

Well worth the enduring search………………..!  ;)

Just Snaps will appear before too long!

Time to return to the vase and flower outline that you previously prepared (Prompt 5)


Using your preferred colour medium fill the image with colour. Don’t worry about shading – just put down a layer of colour according to roughly the original colours

HOWEVER ….. DO NOT USE SOLID colour…… use spots/dots.

Proverbs 3:11-12 AMP

My son, do not despise or shrink from the chastening of the Lord [His correction by punishment or by subjection to suffering or trial]; neither be weary of or impatient about or loathe or abhor His reproof, [Ps. 94:12; Heb. 12:5, 6; Rev. 3:19.] For whom the Lord loves He corrects, even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.

Be Creative – September – Prompt 19

For this prompt you need photocopies of both your ‘coffee’ papers.

1 The original
2 The lines with holes joined up (prompt 11 etc)

Cut these into square-ish shapes. No need to be exact, but don’t make them too large.

Choosing the pieces completely at random and using pieces from each photocopy – stick them on to the torn paper collage background leaving approx 1 – 2 cm (0.5 – 0.75 inches) between each edge

You should now have a greyscale design which could be interpreted in colour in some way. Use it as a design source for a future piece of work.

A bit of this…. and a bit of that.

So, are you coming to Canford? Do you know about Canford? If you are in the south of England it’s a show that’s worth visiting for supplies and more.  Details are in the Flyer below. If you can’t get there, though, don’t go away. Read on – it will be worth your while.

Canford Needlework Festival Flyer

I’ve spent the last few days packaging bits of this and that for the show – and for the Maltings show which is the following weekend. We will have a few special reduced prices etc on the stand at Canford, but I suddenly thought of all those that are too far to come along! I thought it was about time I did a special offer for you too, so here are a few things to chew over.

Firstly, our hand dyed viscose. You hardly need any to create a lovely effect. Sandwich it between two chiffon scarves
