Friday ramblings...

For the past couple of weeks any visitors to my kitchen must have wondered why there was a bag which used to hold frozen chips sitting in the corner of my kitchen - its obvious really, I'm saving onions skins...!

I'm busy spinning a batch of yarn up and then I'm ready to dye it with the skins. See told you it was obvious!

The yarn I have already spun has come out well considering it was the worst fleece I have ever worked with.

I don't know if Oxford Down are always usually so horrible to card, but this fleece certainly was. I have given up on the rest of it, and will use it to line my hanging baskets in the Spring.

I have to admit I am wondering just how bad the smell of boiling onion skins will be - think I had better chose a mild day and have the kitchen door and window open.... the neighbours will love me!

Onion skins can give the most lovely shade of orange.
