Fun in the sun

Our friends caught a lot of fish today. This is one of them. Isn't he a handsome fellow?
I want to stitch a feather for Jude's Magic Feather Project but I didn't bring any fabrics or extra cottons, etc with me. So I visited the local opshop and purchased a soft white cotton shirt for $3.  I removed the buttons and tore it up into usable pieces. A wash in the caravan sink and out in the sun to dry!  (I did try the shirt on but white is not my colour!)  I had to go to the next town to purchase some black and white thread!
Four pieces of fabric went into a couple of dye pots (coffee mugs), two with a teabag and two wrapped around some onion skins. I poured on some boiling water and let them stew overnight.

    caravan...oh, just love this. thanks!
