There's no mistake that Spring has officially arrived here in northern Wisconsin. The ice "went out" as they say here on the lakes a few days ago. We've had sun shine filled days but the air is still cold......which is why I think my sinuses have been really acting up. So much so that a little lightness and dizzyness in my head caused me to miss a step going down into our breezeway last week. To make a long story short I had a close encounter with the floor. Fortunately nothing broke ( including my bones). I was hoping it would help to knock my sinuses for a loop but they persist even after using the Nettie Pot and some medication. So yesterday I decided to get out the dye pots and fill the house with some nice steamy vinegar and wool.
I am getting more adventurous in my wool dyeing after seeing all the wool dyeing on everyone's blogs! Using found wools from garments and yardage found at thrift stores I feel like I can afford to experiment without destroying a good piece of wool off the bolt that cost's a small fortune.
Dave is doing a great job on the deck so far too. This afternoon his buddy Dann is coming over to help with the railings. They were careful to make the steps nice and wide and not too steep. Hmmm....you know both of our mother's are getting up in years.....and as of late the lady in this household has had a little trouble staying on her feet. So guys, better make the railings nice and sturdy too. I can't wait to hang my newest pieces of hand dyed wool out to dry.
