part  4!

good afternoon dear ones!  it is a bit of a dreary day here in connecticut, but a good day to get work done!  i hope you are all safe and warm and cozy!  

this is where i do my dyeing- in our sink.  usually first i have to do all the dishes before i can even start so that can be kinda a bummer!  not too many dishes today though. (i wash the sink out really well when i'm done dyeing, but i still don't like dyeing in the kitchen sink too much.)

drinking loose leaf genmaicha- oh yeah!

while i dye patrick is usually trading.  today is not a good day for the stock market, oil's up and everything else is going way down :( .  pat is worried, and it's getting me worried too.  also, the day of rage is happening in saudi arabia tomorrow, where the people are protesting king abdullah's tyranny; so people aren't sure what will happen tomorrow with oil prices.  i'm kinda scared- we rely on oil for EVERYTHING.  it's so short sighted- sometimes i feel like the world is run by a bunch of rich college kids.

anyways, i must keep trucking along with my work as the world maddens...

these are all the clothes before i dye them :)

liam is such a funny little bunny boy.  i love him SO much- he is the light of my life.  ha here he is laying on top of my book of orders and purusha info.  it's like he thinks if he lays on it, maybe i won't have to work and play instead?!  isn't he precious?!

this is the sink area after i wash the dishes and get everything prepared for dyeing!

these are the dyes i use- only primary colors and i mix em all up to make my own colors!


pouring the salt !!

liam watches, and is patiently waiting for his run...

have a beautiful day <3  and don't forget it's almost spring :) !
