.......at night

Long ago in another lifetime I was the proprietor of a small mobile business called Dye by Night. My partner and I made countless pieces of tie dye, everything from tiny onesies to king sized sheets. We traveled from Missouri to California and all over the Midwest peddling our brightly covered wares.

We were busy doing other things during the day, working, cooking, gardening, laundry ad id  and thus we ended up filling orders and getting ready for the next fair by doing all the dying at night, sometimes all night.  It was fun while it lasted.

I tie dye even today - we get cheap white sheets and duvet covers then go crazy with the dye. Love it :-)

What a lovely picture and fine example of tie-dye. I took up tie-dye in my golden years as an economy measure. I was tired of T-shirts ruined with little stains. Those stains don't show up so much on tie-dye shirts. Sometimes I re-dye my tie-dye if it gets faded or stained.
