not so funny story....
I wanted to do a new makiage piece for the challenge so I grabbed a piece of black cotton fabric and drew out the design with a chalk pencil. When I was done with the stitching and tyeing I heated up my thiox bath and started to discharge the fabric. Much to my surprise it wouldn't discharge!
I retraced my steps to discover I had grabbed the wrong black cotton-one I had bought at WalMart to test and had mixed up with my discharge-able black cotton. Darn! So it's back to the beginning on this one!
