Tea Dyeing Laces

Well I think it turned out just GREAT!!!  My first attempt and I followed the instructions to a "T", but I think next time I'll toss in 6 tea bags instead of the 4 as noted.  But these are nice and soft and you can see from the picture I've included the original "white" pieces and the one on the far right - narrow diamond trim - is cotton and I had the purchased white and cream and now I have the deeper tea dyed colour too.
Yes I think I'll be trying this method again.  BUT it was noted in How to Tea Dye Lace by Linda that this is not the proper way for dyeing "heirloom" projects.
