Finally found time to take pictures of the lace I dyed. Here are 4 pictures of the best of them. I mixed my dye colors in small jars then used a paint brush to brush the dye onto the lace. Some of the teal, blue, green ones I had to over dye as it didn't come out as dark a I wanted the first time. I am happy with the results.
This first picture is of some of the pink/blue combination and some other colors.

This is the best of the blue/teal/green combination

This is a mixture of all the colors I tried.

Last picture is more of the pink/blue combination and some other mixed in.
Enjoyed doing this and the results can't wait until I start a new project so can try some other colors.

Julie, those laces are gorgeous! Wonderful job dying them. I've yet to try my hand at dying... but did order some silk ribbon and the microwave dyes from the ribbonsmyth --- now to find a microwave for using for them. With any luck, I may stumbled across one as yard sales begin here. wish me luck!

A Little About Me

Hi and Welcome! I am 50 years old, married with 2 girls Andrea and Crystal, and 3 grandchildren. A girl, Jesi who is 13 that we are raising and a boy, Christian, who is 6 and, lives with Mom. Andrew James or Peanut is 6months old and brother to Jesi. We live in a house built in 1897 that is not in the best of shape but we are working on it and we love it. It is a 2 story colonial style with big columns and a big wrap around front porch. We also have 6 cats, of which only part of are allowed in the house, and 5 dogs. A Momma dog and 4 puppies. She had 9, we gave one away, then they all came down with parvo. I lost 4 but was able to save 4. A heartrending experience but was just glad to be able to save any. No help from the vet as they want so much money but found some homeopathic remedies that actually worked. I also have a 7 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that is my baby. She goes everywhere with me, sleeps under the covers with me, and is just the cutest thing ever.
