A Good day to Dye

Yesterday we took advantage of the nice weather. We went to a friends house to work on some projects with a friend in his garden. I was overdying a piece of purple cochenille wool with madder. While my husband learned blacksmithing from our friend Mark. Who's son was inside working on his victorian steampunk outfit. Our son amused himself, as only a nine year old boy can, with making a sharp end to a stick.

Stirring the dyebath with a large wooden spoon. Feeling a little bit like an old fashioned witch in fairytale.

My husband is making his own firestrike while our son is looking.

Mark is also blacksmithing...

The youngest of the lot,having fun!
