Grace came over to play

My neighbor Grace is not a fiber artist. She is a photographer but likes to play none the less!! She has made a book with me before so I thought some dyed threads would be great for sewing coptic bindings. Today I decided to take a more Ombre approach unlike the "first strike threads" from a few posts ago. 

While I was doing my recycling separation I came across some cookie plastic holders and thought "THREAD". So...

Wet embroidery thread (Aunt Lydia's Crochet yarn) in the cookie trays

Dye on. Nice ombre effect.

With soda ash added.

Wet out of the washer in skeins and...

Opened to dry

Dried and re-twisted

Details - so yummy!!
