Six swatches Parallel Lines stitched

Now it's time to reveal my 'oops' swatches from thursday, which had a second dye bath, and turned out good:


Also the difference between front and back is interesting! This is also due to the thickness of fabric I used.


  1. Great results.
    I especially like the spiral and the last piece in the lovely blues and greys.
    And great horse's teeth in the green piece one with the straight lines!!

  2. They're wonderful! I especially like the fifth one down with the curvy lines and the pip shapes...

  3. Love how clearly your photos show the process- the double dyed results are fabulous.
