Dyeing and Me ~ It Was Meant To Be!
Just a silly little post today. I had one of those OMG moments over coffee this morning. My mom is visiting and we were talking about science projects. My nephew is turning one in today and as a mom, I've worked on my fair share of science projects.
We began to share memories of past science fairs and that was when my mom reminded me that I did one on dyeing. I was in the 7th grade and I dyed yarn all different colors using natural ingredients. I wound the yarn into little discs and attached them to a poster board with explanations beneath each. I wish I could remember more details, but I can conjure a picture of that poster and my mom remembers that I received a good grade for my efforts.
It's so wild when you retrieve a memory long forgotten and given what I do these days, its incredible to remember dyeing yarn when I was 13. Little did I know what I would one day do as a beloved hobby and small business. What a foreshadowing of things to come!
