Saturday May 20 I will be set up at our Kootenai County Farmers Market. located at 95 & Prairie north end of CoeurdAlene Idaho. open 9 to 1:30. i am booth 71, behind stage. we have more parking this year. and there are red wagons to haul your purchases to your car. so many good foods, picnic tables to sit on right there and enjoy,early produce, starter plants, live music, fresh flowers, fresh eggs, local raised meats, local made art sold by the artists. beautiful setting in the pine trees. i love getting there at 6 am, the sun is rising and the pine fragrance wonderful. as varoius vendors come and set up their booths, fire up their grills, the market flavors begin. see you there!

yesterday i picked a large bag of dandelion flowers and brewed them up. today i am mordanting a pound white wool and mohair yarn. this involves presoaking the yarn a good hour. Then dissolving creme of tartar and alum in hot water adding it to a vat of water to which the soaked yarn is added. then cooking it to 180* and simmering an hour. Now the yarn is mordanted. So i have strained the dandelion brew and added it to the mardanted wool. It will cook for an hour, remove it from heat and let cool till tomorrow with the lid on. another pound batch of yarn is getting its first soak and i will do this all over again.
