UPDATE.navy.IS.not.NAVY.

 So as you know last week I dip dyed my dining room sheers "royal blue" but they turned out a periwinkle/purple.  I decided I wanted to try and dip over them a Navy, leaving just the tops the lighter periwinkle. Well now they are just really purple.  I thought it may have been because of the color underneath, but when I did some research online a ton of people said that RIT's navy dye is purple! BOO.  So for now these babies will try and grow on me.  I may get a fresh set and try it with another brands navy dye.



After doing my art roundup Rox from By Bun was kind enough to send me one of her sketches.  LOVE love LOVE it.  Check back later in the week to see her in all her glory and where I decided to place her.

  2. Bummer, what about dipping them into black? Maybe that would darken the purple? They do look fun, regardless.
