Koolaid and Easter egg dye fun!

These are pictures from a few weeks ago. Dying with Koolaid is fun, and it smells great too! The colors were actually more vibrant in real life than in the photos! The red and the orange/red pink stuff is KA, and the bright orange, the green, and the blue are Easter egg dyed. (The EE dyed fiber reminds me of Muppets!) There is also some handspun yarn I dyed as well.
After the fiber dried, I carded it - some with hand cards, and some with my drum carder.

What have I been up to lately?
Well, last week my family and I took a 4 night "vacation" to another town. We had lots of fun going to thrift stores and a flea market. (my all time favorite activity) The kids got to play in the pool at the hotel, which is quite a treat for them. We had a lot of fun. I was able to find some crafty goodies, which I am looking forward to making something with soon! At the flea market, I found what must have been someone's entire bead stash - and got it for quite a steal. So lot's of beading fun in my future! (That is if I can stay off the internet long enough to get something done...)
