On the Twelfth Day of Christmas.....

My Blog friends gave to me... Some beautiful hand dyed beauties.

Good Morning Sew- Fantastic Readers. Need some Eye candy this Saturday Morning?
I wanted to introduce you to a super talented friend of mine named Zarina.
Zarina is from Klang Valley Malaysia, where she works as a network planner in a mobile operator. Like most of us, her crafting is done late at night, until the wee hours of the morning making beautiful hand dyed/painted fabrics and threads .

Zarina stops by to tell us what inspires her talent.

Zarina; What inspires me for all sorts of projects and celebrations are a whole bunch of colors coming together. Colors are the one that gives character to the fabric/project. Unfortunately, here in Malaysia we have colors but is not translated well in the fabric or yarn that I use for my craft. I am planning to continue making my own hand dyed/painted threads, HDTs. In addition, I am planning to design my own fabric (either dyeing or printing) to be used for my own quilts and to be shared with my fellow crafters.

Zarina is generously giving away a fat quarter set of fabric which she has hand dyed using all the five colors used in her Garden’s Path HDT (in total 1 and quarter yards). She will also include a skein of the HDT in less than 50 yards with the FQ bundle. Check out more of her thread work here. (There will be one winner for this giveaway.)

This beautiful talent is definitely shop worthy, and is now available in her brand new Etsy shop.
Check out the talent behind some of the people behind her products in her flicker group here.
Could you imagine the possibilities with beautiful hand dyed fabric and threads. This is the type of craft that brings projects to life and makes them instant keepsakes to treasure forever.

  3. Her work is just gorgeous. Those hand dyed are just luscious. I can really see them being used in art quilts. That autumn selection of threads is amazing.

  7. Zarina's Garden Path HDT's and fabric are just lovely! Quilting is truly a world-wide passion. I think I'd make a wallhanging or maybe a special purse.
