Episode 126: Indigo Dreams
This episode features the following segments: The Back Porch, The Front Porch, Off the Shelf, Ever-expanding Skill Set, and Sew Forth. Last week, I traveled to Vermont to visit my sister. From baking, to gardening, shopping, watching new baby chicks, and trying indigo dyeing for the first time — we managed to pack in a lot of fun in three short days. Our only excursion from the farmstead was an afternoon in Brandon, where we met up with Jennie and Devon (of Handmade & Woolen) at Creative Fiber Designs. Listen for the details of my trip and two prize drawings.
