DeColourant and DeColourant Plus

Use deColourant to remove the color from dyed natural fabrics, such as cotton, rayon, or linen. deColourant also works on many papers. It will remove the dyed color and leave the natural undyed color of the item, depending, of course, on what the item is dyed with originally.

deColourant Plus acts the same way as deColourant, but in one step it removes the color (like deColourant) and adds a new color to replace the removed color. Basically, deColourant Plus is deColourant creme with pigments already added. In a single pass, deColourant Plus both removes the dyed color from natural fibers and replaces that color with the deColourant Plus pigment

Four Down and Five to Go til Summer

I just finished another set of learning records. It’s late and I am tired. I still have to scan and file all the Logs and Samples. Then get LA benchmark tests ready to go. And get the Tier one and two binder ready.

But I had to look at a couple of blogs and add treasures to my blog. I was so happy to find that April Cornell has a blog.

And the monkey sock shirts….I need to make those for some darling little grandkids I know. I better get to bed.

There is still plenty I have to do tomorrow to get ready for my Quilt/Craft Retreat/Birthday Celebration in Anaheim Hills.

April Cornell


A new blog to look at and one of my favorite stores that we don’t have anymore:(

Funny Blog

I clicked on a link while I was on the Graphics Fairy page and I couldn’t stop laughing. I ended up on a blog called Craft Fail-Don’t get your cowl in a twist.Then knit and felt basket and felted balls. I was trying not to wake up MDH who is recovering from  appendicitis  surgery. I’ll add a picture below. The stories are what’s funny or maybe I’m just tired. I can definitely relate having had some bloopers myself!!!! And there is one called Cake Wrecks also. I had to stop reading lest I wake my poor sweetie up. I am posting this here in case I need a good laugh in the future!!!!
