dyeing silks

have been working in dying some silks this month. i started out dyeing some for playschool, i just wanted really soft soft colors, kind of like waldorf watercolors. the results were cheery and soft and i really love them. look forward to offering them in the new year! i'll keep you posted!

{lantern walk}

this week we celebrated martinmas by holding a small lantern walk at our new playschool location. although we had a few stumbles, lights that went out too soon and it wasn't quite dusk when we started out it was still lovely and nourishing the way only a lantern walk can be. the children and I are still humming our songs from the past few weeks as the play becomes centered around lanterns, fire and walking out to the crabapple tree where the walk to place to look for lost lanterns, lost mittens and papa footprints. instead we found half eaten deer apples (almost more exciting!)
