Woohooo

I am so stinkin' excited!  My hubby bought me a drum carder!!  Oh my goodness I am already planning all of the fabulous fibery batts I am going to make....aaahhh :)  Happiness!

I had a wonderful morning here.  I pulled about 4 pounds of undyed merino, some silk material, silk fibers, and some pencil roving out and had a go with my new fiber dyes.  I spread it all out on the picnic table out back and mixed and played like a kid with a new box of crayons!  I set the dyes with the microwave.  I tried the oven first but it dryed it out too quickly.
Here are some shots as they were drying.
