Tuesday July 24th was natural dye day, I was going for a nice gold color. The one on the left is marigold, on the right is Osage orange in both pictures. The marigold is going to be a little more work though, if you look closely in the picture below there is a lot of petals in the wool. I should have put them in a mesh bag. Oops!
Wed. the 25th Babygurl and I went to Grandma & Grandpa's, then Up to Great Grandma & Grandpa's on the 29th. Although Babygurl learned how to get out of the crib, and we were pretty busy, we still had fun. I learned a bit of history too. Did you know in 1949 one night in a hotel room was only $4.35?
Anyway, here is Babygurl eating some corn on the cob that we picked, she LOVES corn now.:)
Then we gave the corncobs to the cows. I tried to get a picture of Babygurl climbing the fence but she was just going up and down one bar of it.
This is a project I started on Sunday, I found the flannel at Jo-Ann fabrics in Sioux Falls, SD. Tattoo Husband's apprentice & his wife are expecting a baby girl in October. She will need a cool flannel blankie. It's going to be a welcome to the world present.
I decided to do the picot edging a little more curvey on this blankie. So far I've only got one corner picoted. I did that while I was trying to get babygurl down for a nap on Monday. Now I know it takes an hour and a half (with some put the kid back in the crib breaks.) to crochet one corner of edging.
- Someday we'll look back on this moment and plow into a parked car.
