Currently the house smells a little interesting. Something like sumac that has been soaking for 3 days in a pot of water, then simmered for 45 minutes. Oh, did I mention all the tiny dead wormies (probably larvae of some sorts) that were cooked along with the sumac? Yeah. Yuck. They're floaters. Designated dye pot absolutely necessary. This sort of thing is definitely better suited to the cottage. Ah well. Anyways, hopefully soon I'll have some sumac dyed fabric.
