Gah, and I thought February would be nice and quiet. Stupidly busy at work, which is a good thing.
I've finished painting the downstairs loo:What d'ya think? Actually it looks a bit bland in the photos and I haven't made a blind or curtain yet - although here is the fabric, all bleached, washed and ironed:I have been pedal to the metal on this: doing lots of this: and here's a small part of a little something that's a gift: I've put the sashing on this, but have got no further.
I am fairly pleased with my dying results (using a packet of Dylon machine dye) on my two unloved fabrics, which refused to bleach nicely, although in real life there is no where near as much contrast as the photos would have you believe. On both fabrics I shall use the back, rather than the front, as one has a slight green cast:and the other a more pronounced brown cast: I also dyed two pieces of white linen, they both came out pitch black:Very nice.
