I've been busy these last few weeks with various aspects of the dye process, and I'm loving it!! My dye garden has been fantastic and I have been drying lots of flowers for future use. I've also been mordanting and dyeing with some dyes I bought at The Craft Studio http://www.threefold.org/fiber_craft_studio/index.aspx. I love the colors I'm getting. What a joyful process, as the colors leave for the winter I am gathering and saving colors in other ways to be enjoyed indoors.... Welcome autumn!!!!!!!

Sylvia's Blanket

I finally finished the baby blanket for Sylvia who is now 1 1/2 !!!! And I actually remembered to take a picture of it before sending it to her. I hear from Nicole that she loves it.
I have also posted a picture of the knot babies I made for the children to use at school. I learned how to make these at Sunbridge College last summer. I love them and the children love them too!!!

It snowed again today!! April 8th! There were about 4 inches on the ground this morning. Very beautiful in the early morning light... but it has all melted away which is good because I really need to keep at the garden preparations!!!!

Spring Break

I 've just finished these knot babies for my classroom!
It's spring break and it's a gorgeous sunny day but there is fresh snow on the ground from yesterday and I am enjoying the sun from the windows of the yellow room as I work on Milo's baby blanket. I am very excited about it. Birds!!! I am using the wonderful form of birds to create a quilt for baby Milo. Now that Sylvia's quilt is done and Milo is born I can begin his blanket. I have been inspired by many other creators whom I have been reading their blogs!! So thank you everyone for your inspiration.

Happy spring break!
