Leftover Tie Dye

So the leftover dye from nearly three weeks ago was deteriorating... the acid and the dyes don't work quite as well a long time after they've been mixed... so the boys decided they had enough shirts, and both bought two packages of new underwear.  *laughs*  Yeah.  I found a top that I've always hated being white, some socks, a few pairs of underwear, and had John buy me a one pound cone of Peaches and Cream 100% cotton yarn. 

I skeined up the yarn.  After all the other stuff was done, I basically poured dyes from the bottles onto the yarn and got some interesting results.  Sadly, the gold-yellow didn't take at all.  It may have broken down faster than the other or something.  I'm not sure... but anyway... the results are in pictures below the cut.

Fall is Falling

When the kids are at the bus stop, they're often up in the ornamental cherry tree, shaking the leaves down. "Look Mom! It's fall! The leaves are falling!"

Indeed.

Last week, John and I went up and drove the "Peak to Peak" highway and got some splendid pictures and talked over the whole idea of my going to Clarion West.
