Things to do ....

This week I will be dead heading the spring bulb flowers from the garden and then using them to dye some yarn.  One method of dyeing is to place the dried flower heads in a pyrex dish, together with cold water, alum and cream of tartar as a mordant and then leave in the greenhouse and let the sunshine do the work.

There is a "Show and Tell" at the Guild meeting this Wednesday but unfortunately I have sold all my knitting, so I will probably take some work in progress, such as Fair Ilse leg warmers, 4ply doll clothes and some yarn I have dyed with onion skins.  The other members usually produce some amazing items, so it will be an interesting evening.
