The weather is supposed to be freakishly warm today, hitting almost 90. Now, 90 is an odd thing where I am, but odder still when you look outside and there are still snowbanks by the garage and ice tsunamis blowing off the lake.
Speaking of freakish things...
I had been soaking a cotton t-shirt in some soy milk to prep it for dyeing and somehow forgot about it. Until it started to smell funky, then I said "oh yeah!" At which I put it outside. And forgot about it. It sat in a crumpled up lump, only partially rinsed of its soy. When I remembered it (again) and picked it up I noticed that it had splotches of a gorgeous royal blue.
I found a thick patch of it and the blue appeared to be a mold or fungus or slime of some kind, but I'm not sure. It left imprints on the fabric where it had been folded up and the layers touched. How cool is that?
I have no idea if this fungus mold thing will degrade the quality of the fibers, or even if I can get the stench out. I do know I plan to fold it back up and see it if will keep producing color.
Just maybe a little further from the house...
Hope your day is interesting too.
