Hand Dyeing Heaven since 2005!

October Dye-a-Long – Canal Walk

Dye-a-long october 2022 - canal walk - Debbie Tomkies, DT Craft & Design
A little bit later than scheduled, here is October’s Dye-a-Long theme, Canal Walk.
We’ve lived by the canal for over 20 years and I’m embarrassed to say we’ve only ever walked the path along our side. As we were dog-sitting we decided to explore the other side and found a plethora of amazing fungi!
It seemed only right to share this new journey with you (yes, I know it’s not what most people would call a ‘journey’ but sometimes it seems the best journeys start on your doorstep!)

As regulars to the Dye-a-Long will know, subtle colours are not usually my thing but I thought something gentle and delicate would make a relaxing change as we move gently into autumn.

New to the a Dye-a-Long?

It’s super simple and is just a bit of fun to kickstart some creative ideas. Each month I create a collage as inspiration for that month’s theme.

  • You choose whatever medium you prefer – yarn, fibre, fleece, roving, fabric – anything goes!
  • Decide on your method – handpaint, print, tie dye, speckle, immersion or whatever you love to do.
  • When you’re done, post a pic in the group.

Come on over and join us – you’ll be sure of a warm welcome!

Spread the love with a share!
