Dyeing to Quilt

I've been slightly poorly last week and I seem to have spent two weeks centred on a one day dyeing dyeing session, collecting lots of stuff and mixing masses of salt solution. Then on the day itself  we dyed our allocation then acquired extra dye so that last week  I finished up surplus dyes and rinsed and rinsed then rinsed again before final washing and ironing. What I omitted to do for some items was to dampen the cloth beforehand. I have learned some lessons and got a good collection.
