I recently unwrapped my erosion bundle after about six months of its swinging from a branch on a fir tree in my yard. ( Actually, I was politely asked to remove it as the pink and shiny present could distract potential house buyers with its quirkiness.) Sadly, it didn’t change much.
This week I was stopped in my tracks at a blog of lotta helleberg and her beautiful nature prints on fabric.
I proceeded to dive into this new process(for me) – because I love dying fabric, anyway – and bought India Flint’s book,
India knows her plants and the photos of eco-dyed fabric and garments make me want to dye. So I immediately dead-headed my pansy plants and gathered various other leaves from the yard in a totally experimental effort.
I have so much more experimenting and reading to do. And over-dying.
And see what Jude did this week. I think the residual ash in her ash pot/dye pot helped matters. Her results are gorgeous.
