the results are in...

....from our dying day. 
Saying I love these new fabrics would be an understatement.

This photo includes the Egyptian cotton, the cotton  napkins and table cloth cuts.

A few decorative napkins and lace pieces.

The crocheted table cloth pieces.

The green section was really gross looking when I took it from the dye to rinse. I almost chucked it - but I'm glad I didn't. Here you can see I've already started to use it!

...but you will have to come back on 3/15 for the Fiberaction reveal to see more.

And here are silks.
Sue had given me a silk blank which is the tangerine piece to the left. The others are fat quarters of Dupioni silk. 

I recently bought a pair of pinking sheers at JoAnns with my coupon. I used them to cut my fabrics before dying.  I loved how the edges came, without the bird's nest after being washed.  I forgot to pink one edge of the silks and they really got chewed up in the wash/rinse.  The pinked edges were perfect.
