To Dye For
Yesterday, The Boy and His Girl mentioned that they had been looking everywhere for tie-dye t shirts: "So why don't you make your own?" Blank looks, followed by excitement, followed by three hours of fun with marbles, elastic bands and assorted plastic bowls!
The photo above does not do justice to their efforts. They are really fab rainbow shirts! :D
Meanwhile, I had to force myself to remember that they are not 8 years old anymore and do not have to be supervised, so I took myself off to the bedroom to photograph every single skein of yarn in my stash and upload it to Ravelry. It's all up there now. I cannot pretend to have forgotten how much wool I own. Now I just have to knit it all.
I have also been weeding the herb garden. It seems to have developed marigolds and cornflowers where I had given up hope - woo hoo! It is terribly wild at the moment. The couch grass has launched a takeover bid and I can only manage an hour a day hacking at its roots. I have done today's shift, so now I am off to attack the fabric stash.
Then I might sew something - imagine that!? I like having annual leave! : )
