The azaleas are blooming!!! When these azaleas open up the riot of white is amazing. Each year we look forward to them. They must love the location because we sure do neglect them. We don't fertilize them or cut them back. They go way over on the driveway and we drive to the side to protect them!
lilac bush that has tiny flowers. It blooms after the others. I included a picture of the bloom for my Mom. See how small they are compared to the leaves? I don't know what kind of bush it is but the flowers are a pale purple.
On the loom this week was a navy warp. The picture looks gray but it's not. It's a deep rich navy with a few other accent yarns included. The variegated chenille yarn gives it a bit of a kick but the picture doesn't really show it. Next up will be turquoise! That'll be another warp that I'll enjoy weaving!
I got a centrifuge last week from Laundry Alternatives. It's going to save so much time wringing out skeins, etc when dyeing. But, first I'm going to be soaking all the loopers I dyed in RIT in retayne to stop any fading. I think it'll come in handy to wring out those loopers. They'll dry much faster when all that water is out of them. The machine works great. It's amazing how dry things are once the water is spun out of there.
That's going to be a fun thing to do this week!!
Guess I've got my work cut out for me!
Til next week
