More Overdyes

All this talk on the QA list about hand-dyed versus commercial fabric and then seeing Leslie Riley's beautiful overdyed commercial fabric spurred me to get filthy once again. I have been dragging around this navy blue & cream fish print batik for ten years or more. If you look through my completed work, those fish keep popping up. I am much happier with it now. Dyeing is out of my system for a few weeks and at this rate, I predict that by the end of summer, my entire stash of store bought will have been overdyed with something.

Whaaahh...I am in the mood for some dyeing, actually overdying would be better. But the weather is so persistantly rainy you'd swear we were in Seattle!!

Atleast another week of rain, then maybe it will dry enough to do some work.

What? Sorry! I don't know how that happened!
I meant to say that your overdyeing looks great... I have had too much wine, I think.
