I've been starved for color lately. Probably because it is mud season around here and while that means the moose are being spotted (Champ saw 2!) and the asparagus is beginning to make it's journey to daylight, it's still muddy. And drab. And grey brown. I needed a stab of color to get me pumped for Spring.
My eyes swept around the house and I think the Maya sling cringed when I settled on it. The ring sling has been around for a while. Bear enjoyed some time in it
and more recently, Ace...
It's great and serves it's purpose well, but since it's a hand-me-down it's not quite ME. It's muslin colored. I don't do well with shades of cream, so I headed to Dharma Trading Company and ordered a dye in a vibrant shade of red.
I found a site online with directions on how to dye it and then I pulled on some rubber gloves and dove in.
My washer doesn't quite do what the directions wanted it to do, so I just used a wooden stick to agitate it every once in a while.
And the results?
So very me.
It got me thinking about Easter and endless possibilities for some of the men in my life. Hmmm......
dyed polo shirts? socks? ties? What fun I could have don't you think?
