I did save some of the liquor from the walnut hulls, so I can try another type of madder extract and see if that makes a difference. Jenny tried this with madder in its natural form and did not get these results, leading her and now I, to believe it must be some chemical that they use in extracting process....so all very exciting and it was good to use some of that walnut slurry, although I was impressed that it had no mold on it, and did not smell bad after being contained for many months, other natural dye vats can be quite moldy.
so onward and upward into the realms of rug weaving and dyeing.

well,here I am on my new I pad 3, and trying to post photos, because what is a blog without photos! But so far I can't figure it out, so boring blog post, but Iam alive and well, and after the last market where I took my new rugs, I sold eight!!!!and have two left. Who would have guessed they would be so popular. S I am winding more warp and weaving while thinking of felting new things...so much to do, spring is so fecund on all levels!
