June 26

It's nearly the end of June. The earth is full of fantastic colors and shapes.

 Some of the delphiniums have begun to bloom. I planted another tray of mixed color delphinium seeds this spring. We'll have to wait until next summer to see what shades they'll be.


Wool scarf...learning from mistakes


Today I tried making a felted wool scarf.  I've had a box of wool fleece waiting for a really long time.  After watching a you-tube video in which 2 ladies used a wool base for their scarves, I cut a strip of wool fabric as a foundation to start with.


Then I layered on a bit of roving. As it turns out, not enough, and not the right color.


Next the unwashed, uncombed dark brown locks and wool. The tips are sun bleached orange and yellow.


 It took hours to cover the whole piece with the dark wool
