What’s For Dinner?

When Claire’s husband and son come home today and smell the bubbling pot on the stove I’m sure they will be wondering what’s for dinner!

There is NOTHING like the smell of boiled wool!  YUCK!

But how yummy is this?image

Today Claire experimented with the Gaywool Dyes and beige, creams and brown tweeds, checks and herring bone WOOL!  So pretty!!

Here’s some wool before the boiling pot…awwwww a nice spa bath…and then into the hot tub for you!  (I’ve been on holiday too long….!)

So from this to this:

Claire, I think you can quit the day job!!  ;o)

Just lovely…but it looks like I’m missing Spring!! ;o(

So when Claire’s son and husband ask what’s for dinner…she is going to say…”Feast your eyes on this- we’re dyening in!!”

Works for me!!  Yum!

  1. Hey great job! Turned out great. Does the dye set permanently or would it bleed if gets wet again?

  2. Love those yellowy greenish wools. Gorgeous. I used to dye my own reed when basket making...complete with hanks of reed in a big pot on the stove.

  5. LOVE those colours! Scored at our thrift shop yesterday...a complete crazy quilt pattern & a king size off white wool blanket for $1.00! Now I get to cut up the blanket and have fun dyeing! Yippee!

  9. Some wonderful results there. Now I'm "dye-ing" to see what they turn in to. (Sorry, couldn't resist that one.)
