Using up leftovers

Thanks to a few of my fave bloggers, I got inspired to use up some of my leftover dye that has been hanging around for awhile. I don't use old dyes on clothing since I'm not sure what I will end up with, but for fabric it's great! Here are the results of today's 'leftovers':
This one is a combination of Plum Blossom, Lilac, Sage green and Golden Yellow.

This one is Orchid, Lilac and Bronze
This has a little Robin's Egg Blue, Aqua Marine and Bright Green
This one is Cerulean Blue with just a smidge of Deep Orange and Lemon Yellow to create my version of 'Dusty Blue'.
These dyes ranged from 1-3 months old, and I stored them in a refrigerator that has not been on for months.
Each piece of fabric is a yard of 44" muslin. Now I just need to decide what I want to do with the fabric!

Pretty, well done! I can think of a few (million) things to do with them, wanna bring them to the studio and we can play? ;)
