Amongst the purchases from Friday's day out was a roll end bargain of un-dyed silk/viscose velvet. Saturday was spent mixing up rich concoctions of procion dye. I actually dyed quite a bit of fabric and over-dyed some pieces that were just not doing it for me - but the star of the show was the batch of velvet. I can't stop looking at it and running it through my hands. I must use this fabric fairly quickly otherwise I'll just be drooling over it for the next few months and it will end up as another 'gonna do'!
