You asked for the recipe to my Aunt Stell's date filled cookies.

In my attempt to separate the sock waste, and make rugs in specific colors, I give you
"Lavendar and Green".
I made three of them, as that is all of that color I had separated, and sewn together.
I am really liking the rugs made in distinct colorways, after making them with mixed colors for a few years now.
Had lunch on the porch, it was such a beautiful day.
A veggie wrap from Cool Beans. It was delish.
Then the FedEx man came with fabric samples and a deposit check, and that changed the course of the day.
Time to cut some fabric. A whole LOT of fabric. About 90 lbs.
Some of it has to be dyed for this order, as I don't have all the colors I need. So first order of business, go to the barn, and fetch down a few 25 lb rolls of fabric to dye.
It helps to cut it before it is dyed, saves a whole lot of hassle later.
After it is cut, it gets wound in huge skeins, and tied in several places with leftover carpet warp.
This is all from one roll, and there is more yet to come from that roll.
These will all be dyed just the way they are, and hung to dry.
This particular fabric is very porous, and takes the dye well.
Sydney just wanted to say hello.
She has a knack for laying on rugs that match her eyes.
What's with that????
