Four More New Kits!

I was able to get a few kits dyed up over the last few days and into the Etsy store.  There is Honey Gold and Light Desert Rose Pink:

Also available is Summer Sky Blue and Succulent Green/Silvery Blue:

A few words about the Succulent Green.  I haven't had much luck with this dye - it doesn't dye up the way I think it will.  This is the second time I've used it and I've had the same results both times - some of the fabrics take the blue component of the dye really well, but not the yellow so some parts are a blue tinge, while others are green.  It's not ugly, it's a rather lovely combination, and sometimes you get those unexpected things happen when dyeing!

A Few New Kits, One Discounted!

I am finally able to get back to dyeing kits after a long break due to end of school and vacation.  There is only one new kit on Etsy today, but I will adding kits during the week.  (If I get my supplies today, there will be new ones as early as tomorrow!).  Here's the first kit available, Pale Wedgewood, a lovely pale blue color:

Up for discount, at $10.00 for the kit and $5.00 for Priority shipping is a Pale Lilac.  The only flaw with the kit is some strange raspberry markings on the powernet, as seen below.  All the other pieces dyed fine and you could probably cut around the flaws, use the powernet under the lace or not at all.

If you'd like the Pale Lilac kit, please email me at summersetbanks "at" gmail "dot" com and we'll arrange for shipping.
