I had a lovely day with friends here yesterday. It was like a group studio with Liz in the laundry dyeing yarn with fibre reactive dyes; Louise at the table designing an entry into a brooch exhibition; and Julie outside with dye pots full of leaves and flowers over hotplates! I made a lot of coffee and tea but did get plenty of time to experiment with some bits and pieces.
Some very old purple carrots came along with Julie and she was willing to share so I quickly bundled some slices up with other stuff. I like the “Monet” effect!
Julie had given me a large bunch of Eucalyptus cinerea leaves for my birthday and I thoroughly enjoyed using them too.
All of these pieces and others not shown have been washed and dried and ironed so the colours seem so far to be fixed.
