Long Time No See!

It's been way too long since my last post!!! Our summer got really busy and went by faster than the speed of light! Now that it's over, I've been overwhelmed trying to get items ready for our first craft show this weekend. Trying to balance working about 30 hours at my day job and then coming home and trying to build my Etsy business has become quite difficult. I so long for the day I can just focus on my Etsy shop and forget the long early morning commute to my day job and then the tired evenings of sewing and trying to promote my shop. I'm not giving up though, just venting : P

I have dabbled in dying fabric in buckets before, but in our little bathroom, it was a huge mess! I now have transformed our laundry room into a place to dye fabric with fiber reactive dyes and I LOVE it! Organic fabric color choices are quite limited and the ability to create my own colors has been so exciting! The process wasn't nearly as intimidating as I had anticipated. YAY!

I have included a couple of pictures of my transformed work areas and a few of the new colors, which I will be adding to my Etsy collection soon.
