I am posting early to give us all an extra day to post especially our International friends
I must apologize but me and these linky sites are just not getting along lol
Last week I managed to get it to work but could not get the links to appear on my post you had to visit the linky site.
This morning I am doing the same thing but the codes are not working at all-a senior moment for sure since I just am not good at figuring these things out
so enough of all that for now--please post your Creativity Wednesdays url into comments and I will post them into the blog post here-thanks so much for visiting and participating.

My Post: More in the Dye Pot & Spinning
Last week I had another dye day, something new for me using natural dye extracts. This process had an extra step so it was longer this time for my cottons. Next time I will have less in the dye pot, even though I stirred things around constantly I got a few dye imperfections on a couple of the blouses. Still pleased with the results I will rinse them well soon. Thinking of eco printing over a couple of them to see what may happen-not sure if I will lose the dye color doing that-but nothing experimented with nothing gained I always say.
I used Quebracho red from Earth Hues. Here are a few photos: (click to enlarge) The last photo shows the blouses dry.
Remember that basket of romney locks? I finished spinning all the longest locks which were really long up to 6" and the shorter ones 3 and 4 inches I left for the next spinning.
I ended up with two niddy noddy's full. Yesterday I brought out the rest of the white romney about a half of a pillowcase full all washed up and ready to hand flick and then spin. Most of this romney is soooo soft, loving it.
I am quite pleased with my hand spindling (is that a word lol) My goal for the last of this white romney is to spin my yarn even finer-this will be a little more tedious I think since the locks are much shorter. I am enjoying the process and strive for at least an hour a day of spinning to improve-and to make a dent in all this wool I bought to spin over the last couple of years-what was I thinking lol but I love it all-the whole process. This romney will be my first from raw wool to spun to dyed. Have not decided on what color yet-I do have several new natural dyes that I have yet to try
I hope you will check back and visit all those that link up too for Creativity Wednesdays
