Resist dyeing

Whilst on the Embroiderer's guild trip to Redditch, on of the members approached me about dyeing as she was having a lot of trouble getting her recipes to work for her.
 Her interest was resist dyeing in black, using tying techniques. I invited her over to my studio and we spent a couple of hours playing and experimenting with my recipes. She phoned me the next day to say how pleased she was with the results. Here are mine all washed and ironed. I was rather pleased with mine too. My black dye is quite old and I just love the blueish hue.
