What we're up to .......

The latest skeins of yarn done with natural dyes ..... left to right are onion skins, sumac berries, and cochineal. I love the strength of color that comes from cochineal.
I have 2 skeins of yarn cooling on the stove right now that used some red onion skins in a medium strength dye bath. I'll finish them tomorrow with an iron mordant afterbath.
How about these fluffy lambs in the barn munching on their hay?
Update - We made another trip to Lisbon, Ohio this morning and the gas prices were low again. Today the Smith station had regular 87 for $1.66 ....... PLUS when you bought 8 gallons or more, there was an unpublicized "free 16 oz. beverage of your choice" to be had when you paid.
