We had a beautiful full moon last night. I love this picture it looks like the big pine is reaching for the moon.
Today was 50 which is warm in NH at the end of Feb. It was time to change the air in the house. I dusted, cleaned out the fireplace and vacuumed. The fresh air felt sooo good.
I put an onion bread in the bread machine ( a new recipe)
It is a keeper! Husband loved it.
We got snow and The Old Tattered Flag showed how to snow dye.
So I thought I would give it a try. The orange was traffic cone orange. And I thought why not do the natural too.
I put the damp wool in the pot and filled it with snow.
And then I drizzled the dye over the snow and covered it with foil and kept it on low for about an hour. I did keep checking to see if it was taking up the dye.
voila! usable wool! I used green and bronze over the orange.
And the natural I used a earth tone mixture.
I finished the challenge that saundra hosted. No wool was used.
I used an old t-shirt, old curtains, vintage bark cloth, vintage lace, skirt lining, upholstery material. I learned I love my wool! But so glad I did the challenge.
And speaking of wool, my Herb Angel, that has been hanging round on my frame much to long is coming to the finish line. I have this bit, an eye, and the border. I still really love her but will be glad for a new project.
For those of you who have followed for awhile know I have a soft spot for magazines. I love opening the mail box and seeing a new magazine.... I found this one in a local market. It is a Maine magazine with no ad and lots of really great articles, information, and craft projects. While pricey I do think I will get a subscription to it.
I had bought a cross stitch kit some time ago and never opened it.
Well I took it out this week spend a very long time sorting and labeling the floss and now I will try my hand at cross stitch. I haven't done it at least 25 years. I wonder if my eyes can take it.
