Last weekend was a long weekend and I took an extra day off to spend with DS and his family. I'm having a great time enjoying DGD. She is 15 months old and walking and talking all day. What a delightful little girl she is! On Monday I decided to have a dyeing day and show DIL how to dye too. We both wanted to dye some felted wool and threads. We had a fun day and ended up with lots of wonderful coloured wool.Crazy Wool quilt I started a couple months ago.
I have been collecting woolen fabric for the last few months and DIL got herself a woolen blanket to cut up. Here is our Autumn coloured wool hanging to dry.
Here we were with aprons and gloves ready for dyeing action. Buckets of soda ash solution, ice cream tubs with mixed dye etc. In the photo are Bron, Nat (me) and Lynda. We have yet to see how Lynda's threads turned out after she washed them.
DIL and three of her friends just started a group blog called Honey and Lemon. They are very new to blogging so I hope you will all welcoming them to blogland.
