Lachlan Craft Circle Meeting, September 25, 2015

Colour is the fruit of life…. – and so it was today in the Lachlan Hall when members arrived armed with electric frypans, an electric deep-fryer and an electric slow cooker to use as “dye pots”.  Silk, wool and alpaca fibre and yarn was the measure of the day as hanks, tops and fleece “cooked up” by the kilo with a dash of dye colour here and more than a dash or three of dye colour there!  The result was an array of coloured yarns etc that would rival the display in any yarn store.  Some participants today were new to the art of dyeing and their response to the instant and varied colours in the dye pots was a joy to behold.

A magnificent great weather day in Lachlan matched the bright colours hung  to dry in the sun outside the front door of the hall.  Our valley is looking especially beautiful at the moment with its green fields dotted with new-born lambs and the fresh new foliage on the trees, not to mention the spring bulbs in bloom.

Oh, did I see a birthday cake in the mix?
