The leaves are coming on slowly.
I love when the trails are peppered with color.

These squishy soft alpaca / wool yarns were dyed with the
last of the hickory hull haul from Squirrel Nutkin..

They are calling for the loom.

~ Happy Friday! ~

Brewing rainbows..

Autumn is the season of the rainbow.
The harvesting of Mother Nature's summer work.

..chopping, stewing, straining colors..

~ natural dye demonstrations and vending festivals ~

Squirrel Nutkin

Hickory hull dyed yarns..

The hulls were left for me by the little red squirrel, who
I believe is living in the wood shed.

There is plenty of wood waiting for me to stack.
I bet I find hickory nuts packed to the ceiling!

The hulls dyed up so beautifully.

Little nutkin is still working away out there.

Thanks little friend ~ 
I'll be out to gather more hulls later...
