Yellow Goldenrod


I just got done dyeing these window silks for the school.  I used Goldenrod flowers - which are in abundance right now.  Such a beautiful color.  I am drying them now and they go up tomorrow - I will post the finished results soon.  I am busy winding wool and making sample projects.  School starts on next Thursday.

That is a beautiful photo. We dyed yarn and roving with blackberries last week and I am getting ready for dyeing with Goldenrod (hopefully this week).

What grade does your school go up to? Are they combined grades? Missing that environment...

Ithaca is such a lovely place. My best friend lives in Whitney Point. We both grew up in NJ. I'm enjoying your blog!
