Progress on Humble Beginnings

The central design is done.  Now to dye and hook the background.  The color plan calls for light and dark spot dyes over rust colored wool.  The formula is Dot Ebi's spot #44 (Scraps or Spots): 1/8 t Kahaki Drab, 1/8t Bronze Green, 1/8 t Old Gold, and 1/16 t Mahogany.  After the spot dye is finished, the color plan says to over dye the wool with Mahogany.  The  formula is the same for the darker background color, but the amounts are doubled.
