Seta Color/ Landrum Guild


My workshop for the Landrum Guild was a great success. Lots of color on a hot, summer day with lots of sunshine. It is always a surprise for the results.



Combining colors and leaf application with more spray on seta color adds to the interest.



Not just color, but other items that "hug" the fabric can produce unusual design. Here, a perfect effect for a hair stylist quilter!



Don't be shy with color. 



Wearing gloves is a must. The kosher salt sprinkled on the damped, colored fabric is a great result also.

Chick Report, Summer 2011


The Hens have slowed down a bit due to the heat, but not before Miss Puff Ball gave us the most enormous egg. I had heard that sometimes a hen lays an egg inside another egg so it was with trepidation that I cracked it. Sure enough it was a double yoke'r. 



I grow clover in an earth box and bring inside the hen area and they just go wild. Eventually they climb us inside  the box and scratch away. 



Here it is. Amazing that all winter the cold did not interfere with egg laying, but the heat sure has slowed them down. Fall will come with more eggs, for sure.
