Natural Dyes

The green tea dye last night didn't produce a dark enough tint on my linen. This morning I brewed a nice pot of coffee and am trying again. Hoping for a nice, darker tan shade later today.

And where have I been? There's a knit contest going on at Patternreview! That's motivation enough to sew up my Simplicity wrap dress that has been altered and hanging with a clip on the side of my fridge for 2 months. Just have to pick out the right fabric for it.

I say go for it! One of these days I'm gonna enter a contest on PR just for the hell of it.

Thanks for the thoughtful comments you always leave on my blog. I really enjoy reading them.

Can't wait to see the knit dress! Maybe I'll enter my re-done not-maternity knit dress in the contest too when I finish it.
