I love wool. It takes dye so wonderfully. I have been shearing and picking hay out of parts of fleeces I could salvage and dyeing the wool - - in shades of red.

This Knitpicks Sipalu warm palette bag looked great in the advertisement, but up close and personal, I wasn’t happy with the colors. So overdyeing with Jacquard Acid Dyes gave me a bag I love. Do you notice my fondness for reds????
The handmade wooden button is by riverrim from her new etsy store. It was the perfect finishing touch.

Meanwhile spring finally showed up. There are robins, a bluebird's song and lots of geese honking. The tom turkeys are in full battle dress, coming and going.
