Brightening Life with Creativity,
one day at a time...
So what so you do when the roads are covered with ice and then snow and you're stuck in the house for 3 days?
You stay inside of course! ;)
And you bake a cake:
And you do some sewing:
(I've done a lot of sewing too, but I can't show the finished products just quite yet! Pictures will be coming soon!)
And you snuggle on the couch with this adorable creature:
Hope you've been making good use of your time indoors and enjoying the peace and quiet the snow brings!
I had a few spare minutes yesterday and decided I wanted to dye some more of the llama fiber I received from some friends. (If you missed that post, you read it here.)
I used the Kool Aid and microwave method again. For the bright green, I used, you guessed it, lime and peach mango flavor for the yellow. can you guess what I used for the last color?
Here's a larger picture so you can see it better. I used........drum roll please.........grape! When it dried, I was really surprised to see the blue shades. I like to call it blue grape!
Upon close inspection, you can still see some debris left in the fiber. My daughter helped me card it, so I'm okay with it. Whatever I use it for will definitely have a "natural" look! :)
