Thirty days has September,
April, June and November.
Unless a leap year is its fate,
February has twenty-eight
but all the rest have three days more,
which has six thousand,
one hundred and eighty-four.
January please forgive me, I am glad you are soon a distant memory!
As you have gathered, January is not one of my favourite months, for me it drags along every year, but especially so this year. One project however kept my sprits up throughout the month, my solar sock dyeing experiment.
Last year, as part of my subscription to snapdragonlife, an online service run by Jane Lindsey from her beautiful home near Loch Lomond in Scotland, I received a newsletter about how to use the power of natural ingredients in solar dyeing. I was intrigued! I really wanted to try this and as a Christmas gift to myself ordered a kit containing everything needed to get started.
With January looming and still in total lockdown in Wales, I set about and started my solar dyeing experiment during the first days of the month. Here is the progress in pictures!
This was such fun to do and I am thinking about my next project already. Wearing my socks makes me happy, they are like ‘Sunshine on my feet’.
Have a happy week and stay safe xo
