When I got home from work yesterday the first thing I did was choose a fabric to tea stain. I knew the threads I was waiting on were coming soon and I wanted to be ready. This 32 count Lugana fit the bill. I guess I didn't have to choose such a large piece of fabric...but I wanted extra!
I snapped this quick photo with my phone in the big middle of flinging tea. Yes, the fabric covers my dining table. It took me all afternoon to get this thing dyed, it was so big. Then, I only gave it a quick ironing and laid it out over the sewing machine desk to finish drying. I usually iron my fabric completely dry but I'd had enough of wrestling fabric for the day! It got a good ironing after work today.
The fabric was ready just in time because look what was in my mailbox:
These are the threads Nina chose for me to stitch La D Da's A Bird in Hand with. Aren't Nina's threads pretty? That is my finished fabric underneath.
I'm very excited to start! Everything is kitted up and I am ready to stitch.
Nina sells her lovely hand-dyed threads and trims ~ go look here!
