Dyeing fabric

I spent to day and yesterday trying to get just the right color when I was dyeing some lace and doilies it didnt quite happen but these look quite nice and I can use them.
It has been cool and sunny and amazingly drying, I walked quite a way today and yes it is wet and boggy where the cows go but the rest of the tracks are really quite dry.
I havent been doing a great deal, I put the back on the cot blanket today and I have basted it but I need to get the right color thread before I can machine it.
Put some jazzy hair on a doll who has been naked for about 5 years, I will now finish her.
I go to Adelaide tomorrow to see my mother, they rang today to ask if they could up her valium at night as she is seeing things in the dark at night, things on the floor, well she sees them during the day as well, her eyes are a mess as she has macular degeneration but I will ask for a complete list of her medication so that I can double check to see if one medication is working against another. I dont trust her doctor at all and unfortunately mine is on holidays.
I do not want to get into my 90's if this is what I have to look forward to.

The lace looks very pretty Penny, and I couldn't agree more about only wanting to reach my nineties if I can still do all the things I want to! Cheers, Robin
