Accidental Dying

Why do things go wrong when you are at your busiest? I am preparing for visitors. All my dying bits and pieces were put into the garage as DH does not like it lying around the kitchen! This morning I went to get something from one of the boxes and I noticed that my cat litter tray with mop up cloths and files soaking wet!


I blamed a leak in the garage roof - no said DH dry as a bone. I took the file and fabric out of the tray to remember that I had decanted dye into jars - separate tray - and not wanting to waste the drops left in my dye bags I had filled them up with a bit of water to perhaps use later.

Of course some of them had leaked out and the water + dye had wicked up over the week through two pieces of fabric that I was going to dye later and the poly-cotton drip cloth that really wasn't very messy after the dyeing process. All fabric is now prettily tie-dyed and all papers in the loose leaf file is soaking wet.


 I have stood all afternoon separating papers and remembering my paper making placing them between J-Cloths. Fun.

Poor old you! At least it is not raining and you can get things dry and I am sure you will enjoy your multi coloured notes in the future.....
