I think that’s when I decided I liked my eggs scrambled instead of sunny-side up
So this morning, one of my day’s off, I wake up just as soon as the light comes through the window….that nice soft light.
and Cleopatra who is stretched out on one of the dog beds in our bedroom
I get up to pour myself a cup of coffee and notice out the window that it’s happened.
fall has finally arrived!
up there in that patch of tree.
The leaves have finally started to turn
For Kenny, with the beauty of fall comes LOTS of garden work….I mean, this man has been working in the garden for days on end….his passion for gardening is like my passion for wool…..every time he sees a new plant he thinks he has to have it. But there just isn’t room in the garden for everything so he has been digging up and dividing grasses for friends and neighbors and also has started the big task up digging up the elephant ears and banana trees for over-wintering. HEre is a picture of just SOME of the trunks he has dug up.
He still has quite a few more to go.
So what have I been doing while Kenny has been gardening you might ask?
I’ve been dyeing wool.
I ran across some great black and white checked wool and I’ve been dyeing it different dark-ish colors that I think would work well for backgrounds or borders.
So far I’ve dyed it in these colors from top to bottom:
mocha (only 2 left), mahogany, teal, spruce (only 2 left) and plum. I have one yard of each of these colors and they are $8 per quarter yard. Each quarter measures approximately 31″ x 13″
If you are interested in any of the above wools just e-mail me by clicking on the little mailbox….shipping will be actual and I’m happy to ship first class, parcel post or priority. If you need a shipping quote just ask.
My main goal last night was to dye up some golds for the store where I teach at and then once I started dyeing I just couldn’t quit!
Here are some of the golds that are headed to Simply Fibers later today.
Go forth and be creative,
