Wow. 2 weeks from yesterday I will be married. 2 weeks from today I will by flying far far away for 2 weeks. I still have a really long list of things I need to get done. I had my 2nd wedding dream last night. It was sorta stressful but it made me way more excited than nervous so that's a good sign. I am sure it will just go downhill from here though.
Last night I dyed lots of fabric with Rebecca. It was fun but we had some issues. We used dye that we had previously mixed up and did test strips first. We thought we used two colors of blue and a little black. The fabric turned out a dark purple/red. What. The. Hell. Regardless, we fell in love with the color and since we wrote down every step, we knew we could reproduce it. Wrong. Apparently what we thought was blue was warm black. We mixed up new cerulean for the actual fabric and sure enough, we got loads of blue fabric. That was when we began to question what dye we actually used for the test strips.
Anyhow, I suppose I should have been happy, but I wasn't, I fell in love with the new accident color so I overdyed my yardage with warm black and some scarlet... It all turned purple. VERY purple. I hated it. So this morning I did another test strip overdying the purple with just scarlet and bronze and I got my mystery color!! But, I used all my scarlet on the test and didn't have any to dye the rest of my fabric. So, I improvised. I used more warm black, bronze, and some bubblegum pink and got online and ordered myself some new fabric.
