Fabric & Ribbon dyed Last Night



Last night was my second attempt at mottling with fabric dying. I attempted to match the ribbon to it to. The good part is I'm really happy the way they came out, the bad thing is I planned on leaving them sit in the dye over night. However, about midnight I couldn't stand it any longer. I couldn't go to sleep till I got up and rinsed them out to see! Patience obviously is NOT one of my virtues. lol (I think I used it all up on my kids when they were young!lol)

Project Linus Quilt & Jeanne's Needlecase



Well, I've gotten a couple of things accomplished the last few days. I got the latest quilt completed for the Project Linus (now to get it delivered) and finished Jeanne's needlecase. Sometimes getting things done are few and far between so it always feels good to get there:)
