Isn't Monday considered laundry day?

In the time honored tradition of Monday being laundry day, I dyed more fabric today and hung it even before the sun hit the line.
It didn't take long for it to dry. In fact, it was just in time for the second batch to go on the line.

After these were dry, I ironed them. Now I don't iron my clothes, but I'll iron my art fabric. Wouldn't the psychologists have a field day figuring that one out!! After ironing the pieces, I sorted them by color. I'm now ready to decorate them. Believe it or not (although I don't have photos of the green/brown combination I dyed on Sunday), this is an entire full sized bed sheet. Now that the dyeing is complete, I can't wait to get started on the next step in this latest project.
