Alchemy,monograms and linen.

Over the weekend I have been spending time dyeing.

The damask and embroidered monograms look wonderful
in their new colours.
I especially like the fact that
the design so carefully woven in the damask
shows so much more.

I have used two colours.
Here are photographs of the 
violet ones.

In my next post I'll show you two shades of indigo.

 Some of the napkins are in sets, some of them just an individual napkin.
To me a mixture of them works well, like I use different designs
of blue and white china together.

 All of the napkins will be going off to a big vintage textile fair next month.
However if any of you are interested in the napkins let me know.
