I've been dyeing silk scarves and yesterday finished a big project. On one of the scarves there must have been something that prevented the dye from working properly so it ended up with light colored spots. I have covered them up with a painted design of a fish with bubbles, it turned out pretty well. Not sure if anyone else will like this, but what can you do? I had a friend and her family over last weekend to learn spinning and it was so much fun. They did a good job and took spindles and some hand painted wool home to practice on. I love teaching others to do the thing that I love so much. Another friend is coming to spend some time here on the farm and wants to learn to weave. Woohoo! Have I got some beautiful warps we can dress the Herald loom with while she's here. We have been friends since high school and I can't wait to see her again. Finally getting a handle on all the spring yard work. I had to hire someone to help weed and she's doing a great job! Everything is starting to look much better.
