A good day to Dye

The week has finally come where I made enough money selling vintage finds on Etsy, ordered my supplies and started fabric dying!

Here's a look at some of my first experiments while still in their dyebath.

I was going to take pictures of the finished product this morning but my camera battery died right as I was about to snap the pictures.... so that's for next time.

This is way too fun and I can't imagine that I'll be able to find enough stuff to do with all the stuff I want to dye. I may have to get more clothing blanks so i can have fun with it and possibly sell some. Otherwise I'll drown in my crations and my boyfriend will kick me and my mess out of the house *grin*

Kittens need a home!

These two little black kittens need to go! Right now they are about 6 weeks old and the perfect age to go to a new home.

Why do I have them? Well they were accidentally brought to Austin by a friend who bought a boat there because their mom seems to have though it made a good nest spot. He called the Humane society but they are not taking any more cats.

With these little guys that brings my cat count up to 6 in the house, 7 total from the outdoor porch cat who has adopted me. While I wasn't willing to leave them to starve or be put down, that's entirely too many cats at my house!

Let me know if you are interested, or know anyone who might be, or know of a place that would take them!

For a few more pictures, click on the picture here and it will take you to my Flickr photostream where you can see more of them.
