Felting and dying fun with Gerda!

Felting and dying fun with Gerda!

After Horst’s workshop Gerda had a few extra days to stay over in Ireland before flying home to South Africa on Sunday so I invited her to stay at Clasheen for a couple of days, boy did we have some fun felting and dying Horst style!!!  It’s going to take me about a week to finally unwind after all the excitment of the last few weeks but for now check out the sleeveless vest I felted and dyed with gold and pumpkin acid dyes in my kitchen.  It’s great to finally have a HUGE dye pot and the confidence to actually try some experiments out for myself!  ‘Till tomorrow …..

Graduated colour from gold to pumpkin

    Wow!!! I love your sleeveless vest and fantastic dye work…The color is great…And, yes, I thought of Heather right away;-) She does have a way of rubbing off on us, doesn’t she? Ha! Ha!

    Hope you’re having a restful day…I’m sure that after all of the excitement, that you need some time to unwind.
