Dying Fabrics

What an interesting week. Buddy went home with Aidan for the week...and the house is so quiet. But, it has allowed me time to nap! And to get some things done. Yesterday, I dyed a few pieces of white linen and counted thread fabrics.
The dye is left over from my last lace dying almost six months ago...and was stored in quart jars under the sink.The Aida and linens were wet and pushed down into the dye. What came out...was going to be better than stitching on white...so I was not worried. 
 
Then two silk scarves went into a bowl with blue...and I sprinkled a bit of wet orange and crimson dye over the whole thing.

I love both the solids and the scarves. What a great way to use up your lace dyes before they dry out. Very pretty colors, but not being concerned about what comes out is really freeing!
