Black Magic Rainbow

It took me 2 weeks to get all the fabric ironed that Rosalita and I dyed but here it is, minus the yellows that I accidently left at Rosalita's.  We dyed 45 yards ( 5step value gradation of 9 colors) following the directions in Hand-Dyed Fabric Made Easy by Adriene Buffington. The book is out of print but you can find it used online.  The Black Magic Family begins with a weak dye solution, moves to a strong dye solution, and then starts adding black for the dark tones.  The directions are for 10 steps but we only dyed the even steps. 

Now I am going to pack it away for my Nancy Crow workshop the first week of May.
