DYEING WOOL- THE CARROT RUG-BEE’S WAX

16 03 2013

Hello,

We have had sun and clouds today with some snow flurries early this morning.  This afternoon it was in the 40’s but now its getting cold again.  What can one expect from March.

DYEING FOR THE CARROT RUG

Today I looked through my stash for some green, nothing seemed right.  I found a skirt that I had bought at Frenchies in Nova Scotia  and decided to see how it would come out in a really bright green dye.  It was perfect, the blue in the skirt overdyed well.P1020506

I did take the red out of the rug and put in oranges.  I like how its coming out and I have decided to at least finish the carrot.

While searching for the green I found some muted colors to do the back ground.  I think they will blend in very well.

BEE’S WAX

P1020509

While we were in Florida, Cindy needed to get  a few things at the Tropical Blossom Honey Co.  I have been buying all my bee’s wax for candles and salve  for years there.  The wax is gathered from nearby Orange orchards.   It’s so fragrant.  I came home with another 5 pounds.  They didn’t have much left so I am glad to get it.   In the next few weeks I will be making some candles and some 1 ounce pieces.

Thank you so much for reading my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day.    Carole
