What a rainy Sunday!
Is this not the happiest looking pup in the entire universe?
One huge smile as she ran towards me, oh how I love Miss Lou!
Her smiling doggy face makes me so happy, which is good because yesterday and today have been stressful...
First, my camera died.
I mean like dead, dead.
Not "crap I need new batteries... oh, I will get them tomorrow" dead.
Now I am looking to raise money to get this camera.
(so if there ever was a time to support my etsy shop, now is it! ha ha ha!)
But I did manage to get it to give me the last few photos I took on it today,
so that was good.
I really had quite the fit yesterday evening when I put the cotton I had mordanted into the dye jar I had been cultivating for the last few days.
My camera died and then
LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED!
If you remember the color it started from this post,
It went from a purply-fuchsia to blueish-purple!
I still can't get over it.
I immediately ran out to harvest a pint sized mason jar full of the flowers that I used!
Now I have some wool yarn that I spun up this winter and some cotton thread soaking in alum as we speak,
can't wait to dye them and see what happens.
I am thinking of using dock leaves.
Or maybe I will dig up the roots and use those...
Or maybe both! HA!
and here are a couple more that I will be listing sometime between today and toworrow evening.
These I am very excited about.
The stones are from a couple of friends up the street who mine here in New England.
It is alway fun to go over there!
I traded this batch for some work which you can see here in this post.
I am really excited,
I have some very nice pieces done and more in the process of...
So, how has your weekend been?
What did you do?
