Coloring... in winter days

I was so happy with a burst of red from the amaryllis I planted waaaaay before Christmas-
 finally it bloomed
a nice contrast against the cold grey skies.

A little leftover Christmas decor.
Hopefully Father Winter will get a hint...

When I was little I used to make puppets and have puppet shows ( free of charge)
 for the neighborhood kids.
This and many more will become angels
...there is something lovely about sewing wings....

Participating the E-course I am tapping into some of my childhood creativity
Makes me happy.

My yarn dyes came in handy for some more color projects.

Presoaking in the sink with water.
 I found adding 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water really helps absorb the color better

Good lookin cookin!

What did you just doooo...

ohhhh that look.

( the image also tells a lot about our super clean windows doesn't it...ehem)

Have a great week!


  1. Love the pictures as always. Can't wait to see what you are dyeing up! And wait, did you get snow? Hope so!


May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.
