But first....the Living Stones flowers have opened.
Today's harvest from the garden. My peppers (capsicums) have done well this year.
Today I did some actual dyeing. This is silk georgette and was meant to be navy on one side, yellow on the other with a resulting green in the middle. It didn't turn out that way.
I decided to dye some fabric as the backing for my tutor's quilt - something bright and in-your-face to offset the sombre tone of the message, and the limited palette it's made in. I saw these colours on a skein of wool in town yesterday and decided to use them for the backing. I laid the colours in stripes rather than combining them all over the fabric. Not sure if I like it.
This piece was for all the leftover dye from the above projects. For some reason the bright green isn't showing up well. I like this better!
