My first natural dye bath

Yay my first natural dye bath!  I'm using tansy to get a deep yellow.  I'm so excited.  So I'm documenting like crazy so I get consistency.  As of now the yarn is washed and the flowers are soaking overnight.  Tomorrow I get to premordant the yarn with alum and then let the dye bath begin.  So here's the shot of me starting to add the tansy to the pot to soak overnight.  Yay! Pictures tomorrow of the end product...dyeing yarn and cooking casserole for Thanksgiving!
