more silk hankies

some of the yellow went into the indigo vat

two dips and then there was green

it seems that the yellow yarrow is a good base colour to get a true green

logwood gives a dark, royal purple

starting another sample book – this time shibori

using more of the lovely linen fabric

the indigo vat has responded to our hot weather – it is outside – and needs to be put to work

four pages – six dips

simple stitches as I hope to use this as a teaching tool when the time is right

I could do an entire book with this text

poetry in stitches

      Velma – the books are really fun to make, they seem to work well as a teaching tool and I learn so much when making them.
