Day 2 was just as fun...despite the cool temps and rain that accompanied yesterday. Seems even Mother Nature wanted to take part in the class by providing us with rain water to use to refill the dye pots when extra water was needed. Shame I didn't get a shot of the bucket sitting just so under a drip...well...small steady stream really...falling off the canopy that had been set up.
As I need to pack and get ready to head to the airport, Day 2's post will be photos as well. I'll do a more detailed post during the week. Enjoy.
India bundled a scarf in things from her kitchen - flat leaf parsley, purple grape skins, carrot tops, onion skins...cranberries too I think. It was a veritable salad of greens and vegetables. Once bundled, it went in the dye pot for a bit.
Here's where you're to hate me...when India unveiled it, my hands were covered with who knows what, but something that wasn't good for the camera so there's no photo of the scarf before or after she dipped it in her magic potion to darken it somewhat. You'll have to trust me when I say that I'll be eyeing the produce department and shopping for herbs and salad fixings in a whole new way.
