I don't usually wash the table moppers until the end of the dyeing season, but these two have been on the deck boards for a while.
Bird poop, dirt, leaves. Just leaving them hanging over the railing in the rain didn't help. I was surprised at how much color stayed.
The greenish one is a couple yards of airy, cotton gauze. I think it's what some people call Harem cloth. The warm one is an old worn, damask tablecloth, thin and fragile.
A few more rounds on the dye table and they will be going into the scrap basket.

A solution to laying out text came in a dream. I needed a way to keep order without marking the cloth. A disappearing grid. Easy. Creases ironed in, then a temporary line of running stitch. All will be resolved.
Paying the price for rushing into this one. I already don't like the font. Two letters in. Time to pick out and think about it for another night.
I took my car for a spin today. Checking the battery and tires cause it's been sitting for a week. I think.
