batching damasks

This is the last group of damasks bagged up to batch in the sun until the storm breaks over us later this afternoon. I let the other group go overnight and was thrilled with the results until I washed the whole gang together in the machine and got the dreaded FUSCHIA contamination. So a couple of yesterday's pieces will get some additional over dyeing and the rescue will be complete and lessons learned.

pretty brave washing fuchsias with all the rest. i always wash my reds separately, less surprises that way. the "dirty" rock salt piece is neat. i use to use "hawaiian" salt on kauai...just very course salt...i wonder if i had put it on clean fabric what i would of gotten. if it ever warms up here maybe i will try it sometime.
