I had a strange little helper this morning while taking the fabric out of my dye jars. I cut up paper scraps to label the fabric and the mordant and leaves used. Litte Bella got up on the counter and kept steeling my paper scraps. Yesterday she kept stealing pencils and quite a chase ensued trying to get them back.
Bella is 4 month old chinchilla. She is very friendly and inquisitive. I let her have run of the kitchen on the morning while I work in there. I was afraid she might upset something so I put her in her cage. Good thing I did, I am such a klutz. I knocked my jar of sumac dye off the counter and it shattered. It had to be the one with ammonia for the mordant. Glass has gone everywhere.
