but gees I can surely do without the 90% humidity which we have had plenty of the last three days. Started ironing yesterday evening, but my three year old Rowenta Iron died. Had to get a new iron. It is a Black and Decker that I already know I do not like. It drips water so I am resorting to using a mister bottle instead of the steam setting. Despite that I got (25 yards) of fabric ironed, neatly folded and ready to be put away.
I had about 20 yards of previously dyed fabric in colors I knew I would never use (blues and some ugly to me purples and raspberry). I put the whole lot into one big bucket to over dye with a mix of black, navy and strongest red. I am anxious to see if I get some really interesting dark/darks from the lot.
The whole bunch has been batching since about 3 PM yesterday. I would have done the rinse out process this morning except I went off to the Friday group. We met at the church today. On the way home I stopped at the market with plans to pick up 3 items... English walnuts. paper towels and gluten free bread. $119.00 later and needing help to get from the check out to the car (3-24 packs of bottled water which was on sale) and other stuff later I returned home to the hottest part of the day. Yesterday I also cut 25 more one yard pieces of cloth with plans to dye them today but it was "hot and humid" out and my garage faces South, there was no way I was going to spend time out there this afternoon. I decided to iron instead.
Right now, it looks like it is going to rain as predicted. I hope it does and maybe the heat and humidity will break making tomorrow a better day to spend out in the garage. Will let you know how the over dyed cloth came out.
