What a Little Dye Can Do

I dyed my first piece of fabric on Friday night! As with a lot of pictures, the color isn't exactly right - it is actually a bit deeper in color, more like a dusty rose. The piece I did is 18 count Aida, approximately 12" x 6". I used Rose Pink Rit dye, 1/4 tsp. in 2 liters of hot water. I had saved two of the lovely bath basins they give to hospital patients (see the picture), which proved to be perfect for working in. It just goes to show that it's worth saving things, 'cause eventually, they will come in handy!
