There is no better cure for world weariness than a day at home
I used a dye that my friend had given me- a commercial strength deep green. Talk about colour! I'm so used to the Dylon and its half-hearted attempts, and Rit is pretty good even if it does give up the ghost too quick, but this stuff was great! I used it to dye all those 'problem' slips that never seem to catch the colour- one came out very mottled and drippy. I have a good stock of clothes that are ready to be altered now, but I'm not looking at them until I move- I'm not allowed to start anymore projects!
Which is probably why I started some paper collages while I rested. *sigh* Well they are little things, for a package to a new friend, so it's not like I'm starting anything I'll never finish...
