Dye Day and My Darling Daughter

I've been doing some dyeing, getting ready for the Long Island Fleece and Fiber Fair coming up in a couple of weeks.  I was inspired but the colors in the yard.  The daffodils are on the wane now, but the cherry trees that line our street are about to burst, as are my white lilacs.  The violets are out, the trillium are nodding their heavy heads, and the dandelions are everywhere!  So nice to see all this color after the long grey winter we had.

My daughter flew in on a red eye Friday.  She's spending a couple of days with us before a business meeting in Westchester tomorrow.  Its so nice to have her here.  No work for me today!  I'm going to enjoy her company while I have it.

So nice to see those colorful wools and wish I could see your flowers in bloom! No blooms here yet... the trees are barely starting to bud!
Enjoy the time with your daughter... the work will always be there!!

Lovely wools! Isn't it fun to be inspired by the colors of nature?!

Your wool looks so soft and beautiful. Our spring flowers are late this year but I have a little patch of daffodils in bloom in a sheltered spot in the back of the house. They're telling me that Spring is coming slowly but surely.

Have fun while you can with your daughter. Mine is coming on the 10th with her family.
