Fooling Aroud

Dyeing a little
Ever wonder what goes on at the farm when we are not farming or baking or cooking? Textiles! Sewing, knitting, dyeing, felting, and of course a little music too. Saturday and Sunday were hot. By the time we got to Sunday afternoon, we had to give up and do something else or tempers as well as temperature would have flared. Always ready to orchestrate something grand, Leo led us in the annual tie dye anything that doesn't move a-thon. I say this because one year a dog got too close to the dye bath and had a stunning shade of blue splashed on it. The great thing about dying is if you don't like it, you can throw it in another tub and do it again. Some years I have a lot of black shirts.
