Woo-hoo!! My first blog!

My friend Lisa came over last night to "help" me play with my new lace dyes that I got from Charlotte Anne (you have to see her stuff!) at the Victoria, Texas quilt show a couple of weekends ago.  I've never done anything like this before.  I love lace, I love to tea dye, and Rit is my friend for shirts and such, so I had to give dying lace a try.  We practiced on some old stuff, and cheap Wally stuff.  I'm not ready to touch the really pretty medallions I got from Charlotte yet.  (Are you one of those people who can buy lots of yard goods and then never cut into them because they might get messed up?  I am!) 
Lisa also finally pulled me into the 21st century (I was so enjoying the 19th still!) by setting up my blog.  Something about good for business, yada, yada, yada.  I may have tuned out some of the important stuff.  Fine.  I will say a (grudging) thank you, Lisa. 
So what do you think of my masterpieces?  The daisies and tiny heart lace is all 100% rayon.  The large medallion is a piece of vintage cotton that I've had forever.  I'm not sure what I'll do with it now, but I really like the way it turned out.
