Hand Dyed

Last nite, for the first time I have successfully do my own hand dyed on aida 14 ct. Initially I was in the kitchen, dyeing my son's white shirt to light brown. He need a pair of light brown shirt and pants for his concert next Saturday where he will be acting as Lion King. As I couldnt find the right pair, I decided to dye his white shirt & pant using Dylon.

After satisfied with my hand dyed project, suddenly my mind run wild. I remember reading my stitching friends in Malaysian Stitchers group discussing their experience doing their own hand dyed. Tarraa.. I start looking for my 14 ct aida and soaked them in pot. As M using a little bit of 'Havanah Brown', my white aida has turned to pinkish brown tone. He he.. M satisfied anyway and love the colour !

I also remember my stitching friends has also dyed their fabby using coffee and tea. And I decided to tried them too and wallaa.. now I have a pair of rustic fabby!!! Probably because I used a little of coffee, the fabby did not turn well but the colour still charming. My daughter then giving me a wild suggestion, why don't I try do my next hand dye using Milo. Well.. see whether I dare enough to do that.. hem hemm.. I smell of cocoa now !

    Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

    Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

    The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

    We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
