QS Dragonflies. update, day 2.

Here's how it's looking on the 2nd day of stitching it. I did about 3-4 hours.

HAED QS Dragonflies started 29th May 2012.

This is a new start for me after a saw a member on one of the HAED Facebook groups and it got my interest in a few of Ching-Chou Kuik's 1 colour designs. I hand dye my own fabric so when i purchased and printed off QS Dragonfiles, i got my dyeing stash out and got dyeing a piece of fabric. Here is how it's looking after the first day of stitching.

My own first piece of hand dyed fabric.

Here's how the first piece turned out using the Flamingo pink Dylon dye. I quite like the look of the fabric. Some may say it's a bit bright but that can easily be solved by not adding as much dye the next time i do some.
