The Great Tie Dyeing Experiment

Yes, there were 34 shirts in all, each one getting 4 rinses and one wash/rinse

It's VBS at our church this week, and my friend and I are the craft leaders. We stray from the crafts suggested in the curriculum because we want these projects to at least make it home from VBS before getting destroyed. I have a couple [vintage] VBS or Bible camp projects I made when I was a kid, and although I have no delusions of our VBS crafts lasting a lifetime, I'm hoping that the kids are enjoying them. Some may even show them to their grandchildren one day! Okay, maybe not.

I'm so far behind, but hope to get back to your blogs next week. 

Hope you're having a good week! Just wanted you to know that I haven't fallen off the edge...yet.

Your dyeing photos brought back memories, not of VBS, but of Girl Scout day camps. I think we've finally turned a corner with our weather and have been trying to reclaim the yard from the weeds for the past couple of days...after our most recent company left. It's been busy. Happy Fourth!

Who doesn't love a tie dyed t-shirt. They just make you smile don't they. Lucky VBSers to have you as craft leader. 'm very behind on my blog reading too with kids home and a week in Memphis. I'm trying to catch up myself.
