Time Is Flying
Hand Painted Shetland Wool Roving
here on the mountain. Anyone else noticing that the days are just flying by? Seems like yesterday it was hot summer; now it's fall and the cool days are wonderful!
I've been dyeing; had a cold or annoying allergies this week and haven't felt like doing anything but got the dyeing tackled, anyway. I hand painted some Shetland roving in my crock pot; really liked the soft colors that came out. I hope to get it rolled up today into four ounce lots.
Shetland Wool Roving
I liked the soft blue-green so much in the painted roving that I dyed the last of the Shetland that I have here that color. I'm trying to build up some stock for the McLean show; I sold a lot of stuff the last few weeks. I've been busy making hats and pocketbooks as well as dyeing.
It's a cool, gray morning. There are a few leaves changing in the trees near the Parkway and the fields are slowing giving over to gold from green. Last night I walked the dogs under a low dark sky. When the stars are out they are brilliant, shining like a winter sky in the cold.
More about dyeing and the business at Fiber Femmes blog later today.
