In the pictures of the pink fabrics, the coffee dyed fabric is on top, and the original fabric is on the bottom.
Here also are the print fabrics - they were in the coffee the same amount of time as the pinks, a total of two hours.
And, here are pictures of the strips for my band sampler as I had them laid out on the floor, deciding how to sew them together. I decided that I couldn't bring myself to mix the coffee-dyed and non-coffee dyed fabrics, at least not when I had the pinks and prints in there (at some point I will have a section that is all white and off-white) (and coffee-dyed), so I did two different panels, then added some of the blue stuff to the first pink and white panel, then transitioned with plain unbleached muslin... but I haven't decided if I'm going to go ahead and add the second (coffee-dyed) panel on now, or wait and see how long the first one takes me and whether or not I want to add some evenweaves, etc., later on before adding the second one.
After I took these pictures, I decided to go ahead and start piecing them together by hand. I stayed up way too late, since it was about - well, let's just say it was really late when I decided to do that in the first place. By the time I decided to go to bed, I had learned all about ten minute workouts, being mortgage free for life, and making money in the current foreclosure market... BUT, I got all of the pink and white side pieced together, and the first three strips of the coffee-dyed side pieced together, too.
I know some of those pinks look awfully dark for this, and the card print may look crazy, but I like them. I can work around them. Although I suppose I'd better be working ON them. :-)
I need to find another program to use to pubish this blog to Blogger. This one is driving me crazy. I just previewed it and there are huge gaps that aren't really there. Any ideas? I'm supposed to have a program for that with OneNote, but I couldn't get it to connect. Argh.
Ah-ha! I posted it, the huge gaps were there, and then when I edited it they showed up so I could delete them. I still want a bigger window while I'm typing, though.
I may start another blog for the band sampler. Not sure I want to mix weaving and embroidery. :-)
