All Washed Up

or out.  This is after I waited a day for the scarves to dry and cure. Here is the before I did the washout.

This was a big disappointment to me. I think the black and the blue deColourant are a bust. I think I will just try to do an overdye of them now and try to rescue them that way.

I have not had a good day. I have a cold that is moving to my lungs so I have to be careful. I found out that the daughter of my good friend, Suzy, died from an apparent heart attack on Wednesday. She was only 45. The heartache for people I care about continues. My intrepid BIL, with leukemia, loves hunting and so he is going out with his buddies today and tomorrow. I hope he has a great time.

Now, to watch a movie with Mr C and attempt to felt some ornaments.

    I had not heard of decolourants so gals to hear about the way the did not work.
    Perhaps some judicious lifting of some of the colour might get them them perked up? I know that you will find a happy answer. Please take care of your cools – sounds like your lungs are your weak link – that’s how I am. I have never had “just a cold!”

    I’m so sorry to hear about your friend’s daughter and that you are not feeling well. Rest up and take good care. Things here are the same. Thinking of you and sending you hugs.

    They are still pretty, but the contrast of the brighter blues before washing is evident. Give yourself plenty of rest and get to feeling better soon!

    I hate to hear the decolourant didn’t work! I just bought some in Houston and was looking forward to using it. Did you use an iron or a heat gun to activate it with?

    Gerrie, Do take care of yourself. I had the resp. yuck last week and it was not fun. I also understand your feelings about the sad things happening to those you care about; it is hard when we can’t be closer to love ones going through hard times.

    Blessing to you and yours for a wonderful Thanksgiving.
