This is the first day in two weeks our calendar is empty...
Ahhh......sweet, sweet freedom.
I am spending my morning with my hands in the fabric dyes...
I have dyes leftover from a workshop 2 weeks ago.
They have been waiting for me in the frig.
I also have a new to me microwave:
Our cousin dropped by this morning and brought this along.
I plan to run it through its paces and do some microwave dyeing.
The summer sink is set up in the yard,
The microwave, containers and dyes are ready to go...
I was concerned the fabric dyes may have weakened
and exhausted after 14 days in the frig....
The colors are vibrant and what I hoped for.
9 yards of mottled, solid colored, hand dyed fabrics.
I better get these in the washer and dryer!
This was the perfect day to be on the patio...
This is the first Star Lily to bloom this season
I am never alone when I am outside...
The yearling cattle are so interested in everything they see
in our yard...
They peer over the fence at me while I am dying fabrics...
Freckles, the Cow Mama, is in the background.
They are good company.
