OK, now that I have made the darn quilt I find the perfect picture of the darn flowers which really could have helped make it more realistic looking. Instead I had to make it up in my teeny little mind, after I killed the original plant.
Don't tell me to use this and make another one. You do it. I am on to other things, quiltwise. Sometimes I have no ideas and now I have tons and am dying to get my clone to do the bills and laundry so I can do all the creative things on my mind.

But wait! Yesterday, just as I was about to quilt the quilt, Laura calls and says we are having the proposed yarn dyeing day Friday at the Fine Line Art Center. We are renting the dyeroom and can make our messes somewhere else and dye together again. Actually this is my first time but Laura, Emily and Frieda did dye there before and I was a sick girl and couldn't attend.
Frieda dyed the yarn and I made these sox from it. It is Kona Superwash Merino and is so fabulous on the feet. Like Buttah.

This time I am prepared and have the new dyes from Pro Chem and the yarn ready to dye and share, but at the last minute decided to try two new resale shops in hopes of finding wonderful wool for pennies.


At the first store I got this huge man's pullover in 100% wool and used my 'senior' discount to acquire it for $2.83. I can't believe how cheap I am. You suspected this already. But I love love love a bargain. I have already unseamed it and will skein and wash it today.

At the second resale shop I found only one wool possibility and was about to check out when I noticed a rack of jeans that looked promising. I searched through them and found my favorite Ralph Laurens, in size 8! And Petite too! Gulp. I pulled out a pair of R.L. 10's too, and thought..."for my relaxed moments" (ha. I know I have those mornings-after when I must concede I have no hope of every getting my other jeans over the hump).
And then I found a pair of R.L. black capri pants/jeans that were brand new. I got all three, $4, $4.50, and $6, and the sweater too. It turns out that the sweater was not usable, the seams were serged a little too closely making it impossible to get anything out of it to wind. I lost $3 there.

Now you may ask yourself, more yarn? Didn't I mention that I have absolutely no more room for yarn anywhere in my house? Ayup. You are correct. But this is for my education, you understand. I must learn all there is to know about dyeing wool. And silk yarn, and linen and nylon while I'm at it. And you could be the recipient of the finished products someday... When is your birthday anyway?
