I don't have a shop update this week because I'm about to head out of town for a long weekend! So I need to tell you that any orders placed after today (Tuesday) will be shipped Monday, March 14.
I do have a couple of little things to share today. First off is a little dye test. A friend and I are planning a dye project for the back of one of her quilts. We think that Color Magnet might be the way to go. I wanted to do a test to see if the Color Magnet would work over Washable Markers. I use washable markers a lot with my dyeing and it doesn't have any effect at all on the dye. But I was kind of surprised to see that it does seem to provide some level of resist with the Color Magnet.
Orange, by far, was the worst.
Black and brown had the lest effect. Isn't that weird and interesting?
In other news the gingham baby blanket is coming along. I think I only have 12 rows left and then I can add the border. I'm not taking this to the beach with me so I'll finish this off next week. I'm taking a new project to the beach to start. I like how the blanket is looking but I forgot how thick these gingham blankets are. It might be more of a floor blanket and I'm OK with that.
Our friend from England are here and we are looking forward to the month to catch up and have some fun together again!
