Yesterday, Tomory and I had an enjoyable, hot, sunny afternoon spent outdoors dyeing various pieces of fabric (wool, sliks, cottons) with Setacolor dyes. We've been wanting to do this for a while, and we'll see where it leads. Many more pictures of our fun from this experimental dyeing session are on my on my Instagram.
I may, may do a tutorial on this, although it barely requires one (see link)...they are very easy to use!
I hope to plan a day in the very near future for both my young and old friends, inviting them all over for a day of crafting & dyeing, with a BBQ afterwards, and documenting it for y'all. But! If it doesn't happen, please don't be upset...I have about 5 other projects going on right now, and I'm only one person :) (I am the ERMIE "team").
Last night, of course, was a full Harvest Moon. Amazing. Dreams of meteor showers, apocalyptic alien invasions (recurring) and no doubt the light of the moon itself woke me at about 4 am. Put some slippers and a sweater on, walked outside & took some snapshots. I encountered a humongous, beautiful, moth on our front porch, took some pictures of it, went back inside, and went back to sleep.
