Sunny & Brisk!

Veterans Day was clear and windy here at Wild Rose Farm. Nice and cool for the sheep!
I'm in the middle of creating a walnut dyebath and had to pour off some of the dye liquor. The wind was so strong that it blew some of the walnut dye back at the porch as it was poured out. Walnut makes a great stain or natural dye, so the concrete had to be rinsed off right away. I added more water & the walnuts went back on the stove to continue the extraction process ...... I expect to be dyeing by the weekend.
Telling people that "I'm dyeing" always gets a reaction the first time that they hear it!
