So I am grumpy. Really grumpy. Today is day three of my pre-op diet. Tomorrow is hospital. The bright side of it all though is after tomorrow I AM DONE. *crosses fingers* I am not letting another person get near me with a needle or any other sharp object for a lo-o-o-ong time *hehe*
I have been keeping busy though to keep my mind off things. Remember how I said I was going to re-dye my t-shirt rug as i didn't like the colors...well here it is! I really like how it turned out. This is so much more what I had in mind in the first place.
Now I also tried to dye that poor stained sweater and it soaked up a load of dye. I thought it was going to turn out perfect...but it was a dud. I didnt make it dark enough so it really hasnt changed much at all. I think I am going to have to go black on it. Which is ok...I do like to wear black. D says throw it away but its nice and big and warm...why would I do that?
I still havent got the trick for a nice rich red either. I dyed another piece of gauze to felt onto and threw a tshirt in there for good measure...I got more pink. For a girl who doesnt really care for pink I sure have a lot of it around. I think I have the solution though...as soon as I get more soda ash those babies are going to be red...no matter what!
I tried out my turquoise and it looks fantastic...just the color I was wanting. A little of the dark color leaked onto it from the sweater but I really like the effect it made.
Last but not least I am getting close to finishing the embroidery part of my celestial paisley piece. After that I have plans for a next step. I may start on that today instead of finishing the embroidery...then work on the embroidery in bed...since I am looking forward to a few days in bed *sigh*
I am liking the way it looks. It IS my favorite subject matter though ^.^
Hope you are having a wonderful week...and I hope the sun shines on you all!
