Since we've got lots of apples on hand I thought I would dry some this year. I would prefer to use my solar dryer but I just don't think it is going to be warm enough over the next while to do so. We dug out our electric dryer, which hasn't been used in a while, and got that going yesterday.
Then I sliced some up and put them in front of the fireplace. Have I mentioned how much I love having a fireplace?
The bonus of drying them in front of the fire, besides that they dry even faster here than in the electric dryer, is that they make the room smell delicious. W commented on it as well. Such a lovely feeling to be in a warm, cozy, apple scented room.
And, fireplaces are lovely for drying clothes in front of too.
I washed and dried this wool cardigan yesterday and now have plans to do some needle felting on it. I haven't tried needle felting on a garment before but I think it will be fun to give it a try.
