i’m dyein’ here

šŸ™‚

There ARE plans for stitch coming, ideas developing as i dye the threads and fabrics i want to use.

Last night i tried a wee bit of overdyeing and some modifier experiments:

Left, osage dipped in cochineal, logwood dipped in osage–a lovely surprise as i’ve wanted this colour combination for the longest time! , then logwood and cochineal, and cochineal with soda ash, which didn’t deepen as purple as i thought it would. The two logwood overdyes have to have those ends dipped in some iron though to improve the lightfastness, so i wonder how much it will change, and if any will seep into the osage?
