The dye job

In December 2008, I bought a red (pinkish red) purse (bad pre-iPhone picture):

I used it so much it faded to a splotchy light pinkish light orangish mess (inside strap is original colour):

After determining that it would cost $75 and a trip downtown to have it re-dyed professionally, I decided to do it myself. Here are two coats:

And finished at 4 coats. (I did not dye the inside of the strap, so that I would be able to compare the original color to the fresh):

P.s. I did not do this blindly! I did a lot of research on to technique, and die. The dye I ended up using was tarrago self- shine, in shade 101, magenta.

Moving on

Also a day 14 video.

In other yoga news, my beloved Tuesday and Thursday night Ashtanga classes with Mark are ending. I’m super disappointed as they have been perfect for my practice and my schedule, and once again I think I will be Ashtanga-less for a while! However, they are to be replaced with a Vinyasa class and a Barre class…both classes and teachers I like. I also like (but never attend because I gotta be home some nights) the Monday and Wednesday night vinyasa classes…so what I will lose in Ashtanga I will gain in flexibility (since I like the classes every night, I won’t be tied to Tuesday and Thursdays anymore)
