I'm So Excited!

 

 


My John C Campbell Folk School friend, N is coming for a visit.

She's winging her way here from North Carolina this afternoon...

...and boy, do we have plans!!

It's going to be a dye-a-thon around here...

...so I've started acquiring some supplies.

I scoured my area thrift stores for dye pots...

...since you shouldn't use food ones for dyeing.

I ordered some long rubber gloves...

...and some silk gauze, which I've ripped into strips in preparation.

(Raw edges are easier to attach to wool pieces with wisps of wool.)

I bought some Synthrapol fabric detergent...

...and some special German hand cleaner for the inevitable dyed body parts! :)

N is bringing the dye and her knowledge and expertise...

...as well as her joyful spirit, massive artistic talent (she can draw!!)...

...and her life of the party attitude.

I can't wait!!!

Gotta run-there's vacuuming to be done...

...and wine to be bought!!
