results of dyeing:)

I think I mentioned I'd been dyeing? Here are the results of it. I hope you like them.
Firstly 3 pair of cheap socks transformed for Mr Mog,
Next 2 charity shop skirts, Frilly one and 1 fromWallis. Frilly won't fit me sadly its a 12 so that will have to be passed on to some one.
Then a failure:( I had thought the laces were cotton, they obviously aren't as the rainbow colours I painted them to match my boots have leached away:( I'll have to look for some cotton once more.
Then the favourite piece:) Crocheted with loads of beads as you can see, was off white. Cost 50pence:)) I love this.

These are totally wonderful! I've been dyeing my Capri cardigan with violet and tried to get an even shade all over but I was mistaken!... I should have gone wild with colours and I would have similar juicy results like you have. Great job! *^v^*

The lacy crochet top looks gorgeous. What lovely (and inspiring) work!
