Knowing about something and being able to DO something about it are two different things. I’m doing the rinse out on some quilt backs that I dyed.
I KNOW that extra dye is needed for this amount of fabric and to get a deep, rich color. I put extra dye in…I KNOW that they will rinse out and dry a lot lighter.
I’m expecting that they will not come out how I saw them in my imagination! Will they be all right for what I’m doing? I hope so. But it is also possible that they will be going for another dye bath before they are done! The wash machine is spinning now…
Meanwhile, I’ve started to feel guilty about not finishing any of the weekly special projects, so I gathered them up, painted a canvas or two and chose beads.
These all need a little bit of sparkle and then they are ready to mount. I will feel so much better when they are truly finished!
I’m also ready to go back to pieced backgrounds for a few of these Weekly Specials. Everyone knows that a scrap pile never seems to get any smaller!
