50 Shades of Brown

It's now 2014.  Yes, another year has disappeared.  This is always a time of reflection for me, looking both backwards and forwards.  In 2014, I want to do more stitching - stitching of all kinds.  Sewing, quilting, embroidery, knitting, crochet and maybe even rediscover macrame. Here's today's stitching effort - an apron made from jeans.

 Last week, I bought some batiks as I had an urge to make a batik quilt.  I bought a pack of 16 fat quarters in browns….

 …unusual for me, as I tend to like  a lot of colour.  Then I dyed calico in 16 different shades….
..ok, that's only 32 browns.  I am using writer's licence here!  I've married each batik up with a hand dyed piece, and will show you what I do with these as I progress.

Best wishes for a happy and abundant year ahead.
