DYEING PURPLE AGAIN-OLD SILK SCARF-NEW CUSTOMER AT FUNK SHUN

4 08 2013

Hello

Yesterday I got an e-mail from Christa at FUNK SHUN that she had a kitty visitor in the store and he love the cat toys and Elliott’s wool.  This is the life playing with a catnip toy and laying on some nice wool.  He probably will be a regular.

OLD SILK SCARF

This scarf has been in my bureau drawer for years.  My Dad gave it to my Mom when he first met her.  It’s silk but has some holes in it and I want to keep it but need to do something with it.  Today I decided to incorporate  it in the  next few rugs that I will be making.  It will live another life in them.    I will dye it appropriate colors and that will be that.

I think that I will have to do a patriotic theme rug and include the Army insignia in it.

 

DYEING PURPLE AGAIN

I am doing some more purple dyeing today.  I cut up some of the scarf for the blueberry rug and then dyed the rest of the yarn and part of a skirt.  I dyed some for Debbie but I don’t think it will be light enough.

The darkest piece is an old skirt that I bought and cut up.  The other pieces are for Deb if she wants them.

 

Many thanks for reading my blog on this beautiful summer day.  I hope you have a wonderful day.     Carole
