Nice Weather Outside

Gee, it seems like it's been a bit since I've posted. That comes from having Spring weather and sitting outside with the kids. All of our neighbors come out and we let the kids play together while we socialize. Friday, I taught one of them to crochet while we were sitting out there. I'm going to have to get my hand work together and take out to work on. The kids are out of school for Spring Break this week, so I'll be out more than in.

The past couple of weeks, I've been playing in the dye pots. I was trying to over dye my red wools for the background of the rug from the previous post. I have worked on it and have some more progress to share. This is a Blackbird Design rug and I just found out that Alma of Blackbird Designs has started a blog! I'm so excited to see them join in blog land. I just love their designs, whether it be quilting, rug hooking, cross stitching or whatever they do. I think I could have my house be decorated in Blackbird Style.

This is going to be a beauty. How do you do the over dyes?
