MOTHERS DAY

A day to do what I like, when I like, how I like, IF I like. So....I did some dyeing, in the process I managed to end up with purple hands and nails....WHO forgot to put gloves on? Oh well, I like mauve! Bear in mind I had no idea what I was doing with the dyes, I have to get some information on how to do it properly, then you will see better results....I hope...
                                                                       These were done using fabric paints, it made the scrim go very stiff, pretty though...

Looks like you had a good day Jan, lovely presents. If you don't like the hand of the scrim with paint the dyes work just as well.
