I hated to do it ... It looked like perfectly good dye powder. This was dye I purchased back in 2005-06-07. I've been getting disappointing results in recent batches. This stuff has a definite half-life to it's shelf life. It was time to start over.
Some of the dye that over-splashed the basement drain. Pretty.
Now I have a whole pile of clean jars waiting for Godot, I guess.
Now I have a better idea of how much dye and fabric I tend to use in a year. No need to purchase the 8-oz. jars, unless I'm splitting them with someone else.
My friend Lynda and I recently put in a large dye order. Because we split the costs and the 8-oz. jars, we each got 4 oz for the price of 2 oz. jars. We also got to split the shipping costs. What a deal!
The dye kitchen is open!
No snow yet, but I did drive by an area ice rink and saw piles of "snow" pushed out the side door ... "want ... want..." Alas, I was too far from home and with other obligations to scoop up a few buckets for snow dyeing. Guess I'll just have to wait for it to fall from the sky! Shouldn't be long now!
