Dye Day

It is just gorgeous out. Finally spring has arrived, its actually been here for 3 days in a row, what a record.

I am spending the day in the garage dyeing fibers. I was not going to have a booth at the Fiber Fair which is May 16-18 but you know how it goes. It a way to make money for my trip so I need to take advantage of all opportunities. I am taking a class on silk painting on Saturday but that still leaves Friday and Sunday so I called my friend Madelaine and she was willing to share her booth space. So now I need to dye the 15 lb of wool I have on hand. I can't have a booth without silk so I put in a quick order for a few pounds, it should arrive in a couple of days so I'll be able to dye it in plenty of time. Right now my closeline has rovings dyed in yellow, purple, blues and greens.

Yesterday we preformed the Thread Project play down at the Unitarian Church in Pocatello and it went really well. In fact they paid us which was a totally surprise. So now I have some more money to throw into the Taos fund. Yes! I love how this is working out.
