Annie is going to the fair!

Here is Makayla's Annie doll for the fair. Is she not just the queen?
It is going to be a hot one tomorrow so it will be scorching in the building for judging. Cross your fingers Blake and Makayla do well tomorrow!!

Sticking with Jacquard

Did some more dyeing yesterday. My daughter has been bugging me to do some. I bought a couple of kits so she could do some of her own. I played also and did some more socks. I should have added some salt to the bottles to help it set. Well we had some much needed rain on and off, we hung the T shirts out side. My hubby wanted me to run to the store with him and sure enough it started to rain. I called Makayla and told her to go bring in the shirts. Well long story short some of the dye bled and kind of changed the look of her shirts. I will not use any dye except Jacquard going forward, it is good quality dye and you get much better results. Enjoy!!

Happy 4th of July

I want to wish everyone a very happy 4th!  It is kind of nice to have a day off in the middle of the week. We won't get to have our usual 4th of July celebration since we are under a burn ban. Due to the lack of rain and everything being so dry we can not set off our own fireworks. Several places have canceled their firework displays. We could drive to go watch some but don't think that will be in our plans. We usually go as a family to pick out some good fireworks and shoot them off on our property. With the ban in place we will just have to do without the fireworks this year. We might get some and wait until the ban is lifted and have a display at a later date. For this year it will be a 4th of July with no fireworks!

Dyed bamboo socks

I dyed some very soft bamboo socks. I had a hard time trying to get the true color to show up in the picture. They are a soft aqua with sort of rasberry accents. These socks are so soft! I plan to dye some more on Wednesday. Makayla wants to dyed some more T shirts so we are going to have a big creative day. Hope to get more done and listed in my Etsy shop.

Hugs for now!
