This is what happens when you don't use soda ash. The fabric on the right that looks dirty should have looked like the fabric on the left.
I got myself back on track and sewed together this top from fabric I dyed yesterday:
It is going to get a layer of printing tomorrow and then will be quilted.
And then I dyed some fabric based on these two color combos (from my handy-dandy palette).
(don't go stealing my recipes)
My goals for tomorrow: sew together two more tops from the fabric I dyed today. Begin basting the quilt sandwiches. Don't forget to have lunch.
And now for an unrelated rant. One of my guilty pleasures is watching "The Bachelorette" on ABC. The show makes me so uncomfortable that I can't stop watching it. Don't judge me. This week's episodes bothered me for a number of reasons that I won't go into, but I am so glad Ali sent Ty home. Ty seemed like a nice guy and he was from Franklin, TN which is a charming place. But if anyone ever told me they were "tickled" that I have ambitions, I would slap him. Not really, because I'm non-confrontational and non-violent. But I would definitely give him an angry look and tell him what's what. How patronizing can you get? Seriously.
