Little by little I've bought some of my dyeing equipment that April had on the list but I still need a crock pot but I'm not ready to use one just yet.

 My large canner  holds 7 wide mouth quart jars  and my hooking binder where I keep all my information and prices of all my rug hooking supplies. My sewing machine is only partly visible. I use it to zigzag the edge of my backing to prevent it from fraying.
 My Cushing dyes and TOD dying spoons which I got from The Cushing company

My small color wheel from Michael's

 Two additional enamel pots for dyeing, one was $4.99 and the large one was $5.99
 My cheap projector to enlarge my designs on the wall.  It's not the best but it works good enough for what I need it for.
 I got my large safety pins to hold my color palettes together and some round tags to identify the color palettes, a pair of Friscar scissors that I bought at half price a few years back at Fabricville and some permanent fine markers to write on the labels, and even a bit of precut wool ready to dye.

   All what I need to get started dyeing my wool.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving some comments.  JB
