We have had the most wonderful fall making it seem like summer is taking forever to come to a close...which is great as winter will then seem shorter but then rather than get into the hibernation mode we just keep doing more things outside. I am getting tired but will just keep pushing on as I know that winter will appear one of these days.
I have a wonderful friend Karen R. that is an expert in natural dyeing and if you can ever take one of her classes, I am sure you will enjoy it. She teaches at several venues in the state so you may get that opportunity. I even had a natural dyeing day at the farm a couple of years ago and as anxious as I get over "entertaining" she helps keep it real and natural. Thank God.
I also do fiber dyeing with koolaid when the grandkids around especially as it is safer. As my little honeys are becoming older we have switched to doing some acid dyeing when we have some time together at the farm and we are not petting sheep and cats at the same time...love that multitasking!
The littlest granddaughter has become old enough to climb on the fence as you can see her tennies and legs in the photo.
The last time I did a lot of dyeing however my sister was here from Wisconsin and we dyed lots of colors to use in yarn and fiber art. Such pleasant surprises to see all the beautiful colors.
