See how the water is nearly clear?
That means the dye is properly used up, or exhausted.
Dumping the water out.
Cutting the ties from all but one of the pieces.
The beginning of the Big Reveal . . .
. . . ooooh . . . looks like it may have worked!
The big mystery . . . and if I told you now, what would you have to Anticipate?
Anticipation 101, remember?? 🙂
Rinsing the other pieces in tepid water in the sink before . . .
. . . adding the Orvus Paste (special detergent to remove any excess dye)
Very viscous . . .
By removing excess dye you prevent the unfortunate accident of the item accidently dyeing something else in the wash somewhere down the line . . . a good thing!
Where we’re at now . . . I ;have ‘Foyle’s War’ to watch (right now!) and then I’ll rinse this out again, then hang everything up to dry. More tomorrow . . . are you excited yet? I am!
I did have a sneak peek while unwrapping the first items and I have to honestly say I really love how they turned out.
Freestylin’ just seems to work for me for some reason . . .
except when it doesn’t, of course . . . 😉
What I’m listening to as I type this:
Asimbonanga by Johnny Clegg
Bridal Jig / Lannigan’s Ball by Prairie Ceilidh
End of the Line by The Travelling Wilburys
General Taylor by Great Big Sea (that Sèan can sure sing!)
Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen
Handle With Care by The Travelling Wilburys
Henry Martin by Figgy Duff
All thanks to my iPhone’s iPod app . . . some days are just good ones!
Hope yours was as much fun and I’ll see you tomorrow . . . 😉
Remember, Anticipation is more than half the fun!
Big hugs to you all. ~ Linne
