    dye cottage coming along

    My little dye cottage is coming along, read it on my QB blog http://www.quiltingboard.com/blogs/leaha-7839.html, I painted the inside Wed, (cotton fluff, and white) and installed the Alure flooring Thur. and Friday, today will get a couple of the cupboards in. Will have to wait until my carpenter comes back to put in the counter and cupboards, then just the trim to do. Oh can hardly wait!! So ready to get back to dyeing! Having heat and air, makes it great to be able to work out there all year.

    I have my washer, and have ordered spin dryer, have all my buckets and dye tools, so ready to get going!

    I could use some help from all of you, I need a name for my cottage. And if all goes well I will get another shed, probably a barn one to go with my cottage, for my finished items for sale. But what to call my little business?? This is one area I am so not good at, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Will post more pictures when it is all done.

    I am so jealous. I would love to come and play there. I am just learning to dye fabris. It is something that has been on my bucket list for some time. Just had a class last night at my guild meeting. So much fun and I can see so many possibilities for fun projects. I can't wait to play some more.

    I am interested in doing some dying myself!! I am going to subscribe to this thread and hopefully learn a thing or two. How about:
