  1. Aren't you having fun!!! I love to discharge. The uncertainty is the most fun.

  2. You might be having too much fun....if there is such a thing!

  3. These turned out great! I just discharged a table runner I made last fall...I had a hard time stopping!!! HA

  4. This is probably something I could get addicted to! It looks like a lot of fun!

  5. Have you washed these pieces? I used some old discharge paste, it seemed to work fine but when I washed the fabric the design was gone.

  6. What fun Luann- love the demo of the cards you and your friends did also the clip on discharge. Would love to have a go at this.
    I signed up for your blog and at first I got your notices when a new blog was out but lately that hasn't happen ? Wonder why if I am doing something wrong on computer. Just happen to see this notice on Pinterest. So checked it out, thanks for sharing.
