Can't find the sample made by the lady who explained how to do the off center pleat. Thanks, again. First try came out nice

GREEN: I just figured out what caused the two wavy lines. I only half filled the container. I swapped ends of the fabric roll in the container, resting it at an angle each time. The roll at opposite angles and alternating ends in the container became wavy lines... :)

These results are beautiful. Are the greens and brown your own color mixes? Very vibrant :-)

Yes, own mixes. I had great plans to keep meticulous notes, paper & pen ready. It lasted through the first two mixes, then I totally forgot about it. ADD & over 60. Some tricks just don't stick in the memory file when I get in the groove
