I found an article about dying wool in the microwave, just using
food coloring and white vinegar, and I tried it out on some old gloves.
I used blue, red and black dye - all in all maybe 20 ml - in a glass jar
with 1 part vinegar to 5 parts hot water.
Microwave on full for 2 minutes, then stir. Repeat until insane...
It took me about 10 times to get the shade I wanted. You're supposed
to let it cool down in between runs to prevent it from boiling over,
but that took too long... Yeah, my microwave is a purple mess now :)
I made some cheap autumn and Halloween candle holders,
because clearly you can never have too many of those.
I'm itching for it to be September already so I can start decorating
my house for the fall season. I even called a nearby Garden Center
to inquire about pumpkins and gourds ('Not yet' was the answer...).
What have you guys been up to lately?
