|Salsa Jar blue|
The mission is to get the ball of thread out of the dye, and thoroughly rinsed and dried without turning it into the worlds prettiest knot of uselessness. Remove the lid and place your (gloved?) hand over the top of the opened salsa jar and tip out the ball of thread. Rinse the intact ball of thread thoroughly ... a combination of gentle running water over cupped hands holding the sacred ball, then placing the ball in an ice cream container of water and letting it sit then assist with gentle agitation. Hold the ball of thread so that the risk of tangles is reduced. Repeat as many times as necessary and at least once more than you think. Allow the rinsed ball of thread to dry ... the above took about a week. Voila. The variegations are subtle and gorgeous, and this has been the main quilting thread used in "Journal to Quilt" for State of the Art Quilt 2011. Thank you again Ankie.
