|It's COLD out there..|
After a busy weekend, I'm spending the day inside, nice and warm, playing with some fleece and a pot of dye. What better activity could there be for a chilly, grey day? Besides baking..which I might get to a little later on...
|Cochineal and blue food colouring w/vinegar. Interesting how the blues and reds separate in areas.|
|Handspun wool dyed with a brown onion skin dye. Both out of the same dye pot, the two on the left were dyed with aluminium while the two on the right had the addition of iron (horseshoe) to the pot.|
Could this be the weirdest egg you have ever seen?
|Older hens can sometimes lay wrinkled eggs. We have several 'aged' ladies in our flock..|
One of our chooks laid it over the weekend and it freaks me out everytime I look at it! Kinda scared to crack it open, to be honest. Although in saying that... I am tempted to gently blow out the contents and save the crinkled shell for a freakish Halloween decoration...
