Thanks so much Carol, Alison and Beth! Alison, I used the dye we got from Intercal - Cushings Perfection Dyes - it's Nile Green. The way I overdyed it was I only dipped the fabric in the dye long enough for the threads to capture the color, not the backing and rinsed it till the water ran clear - I did this twice - there are a couple spots on the fabric where the backing also dyed but I didn't use that part of the fabric!
I was thinking it would be pretty with lavender, too!
Janice I just realized that I didn't thank Joanne and Becky for their sweet comments about Sayona - THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for your kind words! I appreciate them so much!
