To Dye For

I never liked that saying...
Oh such and such is 'to die for'

However, as a works!
So here is to DYE for.

Cloth diaper with the two parts of a canning jar lid tucked inside.
Held in place with thin copper wire.
Tossed into the dye pot with rain water, onion skins, a rusty horseshoe...etc.

Maybe other stuff, I don't remember now.
In fact I forgot all about it until I got a message from Jude today.

When I went to look, there was not even any water left.
It has been pretty hot around here!
