Dyeing to Stitch...

well I have my Aida cloth dyed for the Plump Wife sampler...
I tea stained it and crinkled it and baked it.
I like how it looks,...
I can finally sort my GAST threads again and get stitching on it!
Stay tuned!
Blessings from the Farm,


  1. Great fab dye turnout!
    I've been stitching on linen so long but I might have to pull out the Aida and try to dye it too. Looks great!

  2. Hi Lori,
    I'm looking forward to seeing the plump wife when it's finished. My computer was down a while but I'm catching up and wanted to tell you how beautiful Hannah is. I really enjoyed her prom pictures and the little quilts were wonderful. I popped into Midnight Farm too and I can see by the smile on your sweet witch doll that she has some true magic up her sleeve. Have a great week and thanks so much for sharing.

    Blessed be,

  3. This piece turned out very nice....I'm looking forward to seeing PW come to life.

    Loved all the pictures of your shop and the ladies making their quilts....what fun. If I ever get back to your area I'd love to visit your spot...hugs, Linda
