Dyed with a mermaid pattern in mind. Oddly enough, this was a lovely mix of blues and greens…until I rinsed it. For some reason, all the yellows rinsed out of the greens, and I was left with nothing but the blues! Still, I think it turned out nice. Will have to try some different greens next time, not sure what went wrong with the ones I used.

Just to prove I am really working on this, as slow as it may be going. 1 month left, need to get on the ball to get this done in time! At least the other two WIPs for Christmas should only take 2 or 3 days each. Which gives me about 3 weeks to get this one done. Blah!

Ok, you all know how I enjoy test dying fabric. Usually, I use linen or evenweaves, as these are what I like to stitch on. I’m not a huge fan of using Aida. However, I had some pieces of Aida handy when I was in a creative mood, so I came up with these two:
Now, since there is a 98% chance that I will never stitch on this fabric myself, I am offering it up as a free gift! Think of this as a raffle. Anyone who is interested in this fabric, send me a message at email@example.com. If you are unable to enter via e-mail, feel free to leave a comment here instead. Only one ‘entry’ per person, lol! I will ‘draw’ a name at random on Saturday (the 19th), and the lucky person will receive both these fabrics.
Details on the fabric:
starburst: 14 count aida, 8″ x 9″
gradient purples: 14 count aida, 8.5″ x 14.5″
Please note, the aida is leftovers from kits where I swapped out fabric, and is fairly stiff.
No limits on country of residence for etrants. Just keep in mind that I’m in the US, so if a non-US person wins, it may take a bit longer for the fabric to arrive. 🙂
Update 11/19/11: The raffle is closed and a winner has been drawn. Congratulations, Tanya W! Please check your e-mail. 🙂 Everyone else, thank you for entering. I will likely be holding other raffles in the future for more hand-dyed aida. I have several blank pieces of it from old kits where I swapped fabrics, so keep an eye out for future chances!

I’m working on Christmas stuff. Really! I swear I didn’t start any new projects!
Oh god, I have no self control…
