So her plans for the week is ruined because she didn't checked online to confirm her seat last night. She purchased her ticket from a travel agency. So her plans are on hold for another week.
Today I decided that I better start to shovel the roof on the sunroom. There was about 2 feet of snow and the weather was warming up. My husband was busy working on the farm income statement so I tried to set up my new folding ladder by myself but it was a bit too heavy for me to set up so I asked my husband for help. I was afraid to break my window with the heavy ladder. He took pity on me and came to help shovel. It works every time.... Sorry, no pictures.
Then I got into my dye pots and did my yellow. Well it's sort of yellow, I guess. All I know, I like the results. This time I used Strawberry Red, Buttercup Yellow and Bronze Green. This is my third palette.
Since my canner only holds 7 jars, I use another small pot for my 8th palette.
I boiled quite a bit more than I needed. I wanted some skin color and thought that I would experiment with different strength. I got quite a bit of dye solution from about two cups of onion skins. A quart plus a bit more in the pot. It doesn't take much to get some strong color.
This was my last piece, just before I added the vinegar
I hope that you enjoyed my little adventure into the dye pot. Thanks for stopping in and leaving a comment. JB
