Last Wednesday I was very good and reported a finished block for my lace quilt. This Wednesday I have a pile of dyed threads to show you. That’s it!
That is what I have been doing but I was considerably slowed down because we have had rain. The most rain since 2002. So I have had a few days dancing around with a hair dryer in my hand trying to speed up drying time!
This batch of threads has some experimental yarns in it. Fibers like bamboo, tencel and interesting mixes like 50/50 wool /silk. They have taken the dye well (I used procions) but I have yet to see how they stitch up.
Anyway that is my work in progress report for this Wednesday!
Added later: Just to clarify – I am really happy about the rain. I have been bucketing recycled washing machine water to our garden for years (that is no exaggeration) just to keep it alive. This year I had to let the magnolia die as it needed too much water. Rain is Gooooooood! Rain is woooonderfoooool!I am dancing about the rain!
