This month's theme was "The pink scare". It took FOREVER to dry. I might have to move up the time I make payments due, so there is more time for proper mordanting (two day+ cure process if I have my way, plus a day to dye and let it cool properly to set for best color and light fastness, then rinsing and drying). Some day I will actually write an article on how time intensive the dye process for this actually is.
