Flowers and Other Stuff

Spring is here and that means a lot of flowers.  Duffy checks out the roses each morning to make sure there are no uninvited critters underneath.IMG_3153IMG_3156IMG_3151A warm sunny day is also a reason to bring out the solar oven.  Pat makes a wonderful meal with fingerling potatoes, bell peppers, carrots,onions and pork chops in the solar oven.  There is no kitchen in our house during the summer.IMG_3145IMG_3147There is some weaving going on.  I am still intrigued by Saori weaving, a free form style that you can try different yarns and colors.  I will be cutting this to make a vest.  (Yeah, right.  I say that now.)IMG_3157Take care and see ya,

  1. Nice to see the color in the yard! I found solar dyeing fun but never cooking that way!
    I had challenges with my seams when putting my weaving into sewn objects-I didn’t read up on it and probably should have to learn from others’ mistakes, too. Next time! You should definitely give it a try when you are done with this woven yardage!
