held annually here near Charlottesville, VA ~
wool glorious wool !!!
so I've asked him if he wouldn't mind going...
of course, Hannah will be with us too!
as we'll be going on Sunday...
& get it dyed for more felting projects...
I have my color palette all picked out from my dye swatches
(I use Cushings dyes)
and am also hoping for chillier days to dye by...
temps have been in the low 80's still during the day, and humid. ~
not exactly what I call good weather for staying indoors & dyeing!
I'll cook pots of yummy roasts, chicken & dumplings and such ~
the stove downstairs in the cellar is reserved for dyeing,
as it throws lots of heat...
I feel like a turn-of-the-century girl down there
when I'm busily stirring the dyepot!
perhaps I'll fire up the old cauldron out front...
the tang of woodsmoke in the air is a beautiful thing
when it's gone missing all hot, summer long, and hey, since the fire's outside, the heat will be too!
and if I didn't change things up now & then, you'd be bored too, right?
