Last week while I was home dying wool I had a call from my daughter. ” I think something is happening “. “Ok, I’ll change and head down.”
I quickly looked at the wool that was in 2 different pots. I had been trying to dye some blues of different values for a background sky I am working on.
Well, I decided to combine both in one pot. They were almost done anyway and I didn’t have time to mess around. My daughter would soon be delivering her second child and I lived 1 1/2 hrs away.
Several hours later, Lucy was born. I returned home, briefly, looked at the wool, drained the very clear water and had this as a result. Not bad, in fact it is working out quite well in this rug.
Lucy blue, I could never duplicate it. It is one of a kind, just like Lucy will be.
