I walked around with my camera today. I wanted to see if I could get a shot of these tiny wild flowers so you can see how perfect they are and just so pretty. Always the first wild flower on the foothills to bloom.
Then further down an even tinier purple one. My camera is good for closeups. It is a 5 pixel Cannon. I love that camera and it has its moods and sometimes I think I won't be able to get it to work and I fiddle with it and it starts working again. I am going to be up a creek if it breaks.
This has all started blooming since yesterday. It just amazes me at how fast once we have a warm day things change.
Yesterday because I could open the house I spent the morning dyeing wool. I enjoyed it so much the house didn't smell too bad at least the boys didn't complain.
I love the different colors I got out of this bunch of wool. I am still trying to get this down but I am pretty happy. On the blues and greens I got that mottled look, now if I can make myself stop stirring I will get a better look.
I love it when wool is stacked like that. I should have cut it for my new rug and started it today, but I just petted it and stared at it. I just wasn't ready to cut it yet.
Then the blues and greens. I think it is so much fun to do this and watch the results. There is a special kind of freedom too. With no wool stores in my town, I always have to order wool then wait for it to get here. Now I try to keep white, off white and heather in my stash and dye so that I can dye what I need. Being able to dye wool gives my mind a rest and a peace that just makes me feel so settled and calm.
I am so thankful for a quiet Sunday. Next week will be anything but quiet.
I hope you had a very nice quiet day.
Blessings to you,
