the design is perfect and well something about having red run a little is almost vintagey as red has always been a notoriously untrustworthy color...try your best to not think about it or tell yourself at least it didn't scorch which is another tragedy that has happenned to almost all of us.

mego if you wanted to get experimental I would suggest maybe you investigate crayon tinting so the background leans to a different hue than the outfit but otherwise I would just embrace it as being vintage.

...my other notes are that heat can set color bleeding so if you notice bleeding and plan to attempt removing the dye don't iron the fabric.

Thanks for the nice words, and for the tips, ladies! One story I came up with was that I time traveled back to the 20s, stitched it there, and then on the return trip something in the time space continuum caused the fabric and thread to age prematurely. Wink

I think I am okay with it now, but you can imagine it was pretty horrible at the time. It's just that you spend anywhere from 8-12 hours on some of these things and plus it's on a huge piece of fabric with other people's work... if it was something for myself, I just would have gotten a new towel and started over.

I don't think I could ever work in textile restoration. Too stressful!

I just finished up my last towel.  Cry It will be on it's way to Paleangellex this afternoon or in the morning. Her theme was birds so I chose this cute little vintage transfer from the hoop love pool over on flickr. I won't post a finished pic of her towel as I'll let her have the honors, but dang it is cute! Wink

I couldn't get a great pic because it is super dreary out here today. This is the best I could do.  Roll Eyes I used several colors of pink for the flowers, variegated floss for the nest and leaves, and two different yellows for the birds.

What a sweet little bird's nest!  Great choice of design.  I haven't yet used anything from that Flickr group, but I probably will soon ....
