I have decided to go back to my basics as far as hand dyeing thread (basics to me is how to mix up the dyes). I also made a decision this week to go through Linda Johansen's Fabric Dyer's Dictionary book. I am going to eventually do all the sample color swatches in thread instead of fabric. Below is my first grouping. I figured this would give me a good understanding what colors to use, how the dyes react to each other, and ideas for variegated threads. My goal is to do one or two groups a week. This will keep me busy and out of trouble!
