Last Day of July

I took my camera today on my walk with my aussies.  
Below are a couple of shots that I particularly liked.

Just finished a small piece, yes, I am back to lupines. 

Looking forward to August!

Dyeing wool using KoolAid

I am spending the day dyeing wool, using KoolAid.  Right now I have wool simmering in blastin' berry cherry!  This is such a fun, non-toxic method and my kitchen smells yummy.
                                                                                                                                                                       First I soaked the wool in warm vinegar water

Hot Red before adding the wool 

              Finally:  The darker red was a cookies and cream wool from my sheep, Thorin

I love taking care of my sheep, watching them is so much fun.  Here is my first attempt - trying to convey their whimsy.  This is my ewe Precious.  I think there will be more sheep pieces.
