Why is it there are so many things to do on the same day? Saturday I had planned on attending the From our Hand & Hearts show in Peninsula, OH. I passed on the dog rescue event so I could attend. Then the chance to take a dye class came up. I was torn, but decided it would be much cheaper to take the dye class than to attend the show . . . lol.
I hook with mostly as-is wools, but do like some of the dyed wools, but at $40-$70 a yard, they are much too rich for my blood. Hopefully I will learn some techniques and start more dyeing. I have all the equipment and many packages of dye. Finding the time is a big problem. I guess I will just have to make the time.
Last week I did dye some blue wool (narrow piece on top) I had. I had heard a bath of Cushing seal brown is great to tone down wool, and I am pleased with the results. I am using it as the background wool on my robin.
My DSO lives in what used to be the local shipyards and the former dry dock where 1,000 foot ore carriers were built is out his front door. Heron are frequent visitors. This guy was kind enough to let me get a couple good pictures.
Not much else going on. Thanks for the visit.
Pug hugs :)
