DebraBee's Progress

My Color Choices:

I chose a 32ct hand dyed linen - color is Barn Owl. Crescent Colours hand dyed silk floss - Poison Apple as my main color and Icing as an accent. I am stitching 1 over 2. The first time I had to remove stitches I was horrified that it left this schmear of red on the linen. You guessed it. I have never used hand dyed floss before! I was able to rub some of the red out but if anyone has suggestions on how to remove the bleeding I welcome your feedback.

My Work in Progress:

Everyone’s work is beautiful and you are all so inspiring to me. A big “Thank You” to Hazel for all of your efforts in starting this post and keeping it running smoothly.

Ogden, Utah

It looks great but yes I have experienced the dye rubbing off myself. I would be afraid to treat the whole piece at this point but you may want to give your remaining unused thread a cold bath to remove some of the excess dye. (test piece first!) I just had some green WDW rub off on a piece I was ironing when some hot water dripped from the iron - eek!!
