Margret Lawrance is not quite ready for her closeup yet, but this soggy view will have to serve as her official Finish photo. The reds in the lower part of the piece bled when the sampler was rinsed out.
It's interesting--the reds that bled appear to be from the second skein of Anchor floss that was used. If anyone hasn't yet gotten the message that colorfast is kind of a squishy term, learn from this! One skein appears to be OK, one was not OK.
The sampler has now been soaking since Friday morning. It's now early afternoon Monday. I'm thinking I see some improvement, but there is certainly still bleeding visible.
At some point, I'll let it dry and see how things look. I'm trying to remain optimistic.
