The sun was out this morning, but disappeared this afternoon, so I stayed in and attempted to expand the selection of blues in my stash - the dyes came out.
I'm trying a combination of methods here - low-water immersion and microwave dyeing to get six different shades and to see what the different results are with each method.
A very elderly ( 101) resident in our road died recently, and her family are clearing her house. She had this Frister and Rossman machine, which I think dates from the early sixties. It looks in very good condition, but had no plug , so could not test if it is working. I'll offer this to our quilt group and then on Freecycle if no-one wants it.
