Wow! It's been a super busy week already and it's only Wednesday! I'm very glad we've taken this break from the quilt along because looking at how packed every single day has been, I know I wouldn't have had time to make a decent video on top of everything else.
So what have I been so crazy busy with? Well, all weekend was consumed with the dyeing experiment which started big and ended up growing to gigantic proportions.
And for anyone concerned by the photo above - I'm not dyeing in my main kitchen. This is the small kitchen area in my basement studio. When Josh and I started looking for our house 6 years ago, I specifically looked for a place with a finished basement and extra kitchen, just in case I got into dyeing fabric. It's a good thing I planned ahead as it's coming in very useful now.
Looking through all the colors of red, orange, and yellow I played with this weekend, I believe this is the perfect color of red:
When I haven't been dyeing fabric, I've been working outside, trying to get my yard under control. Yesterday evening with a level, string, and bit of elbow grease, I set the stone for this third garden:
Fortunately I already knew what needed to be done to fix this problem. I'd always planned on installing a tile or french drain to catch rainwater and drain it to either side of the house and now it must be done to deal with this weird weather.
Time to shut up and go quilt,
