Results of Dyeing

18th June 2013

I have had a lovely day. I went to a garden centre near Garstang and bought some new pots and plants, had lunch then walked the dog along the canal and picked some grasses to press.

When I walked into my kitchen this morning this is what I saw through the window.



I was so pleased to find the colours were still vibrant when the fabric was dry.

As I was ironing the fabrics I was planning my next project!


I was delighted with the colours in the yarn although it took me nearly an hour to untangle them!!


I also looked at work by Paul Klee, Andy Goldsworthy and Hundertwasser for ideas in design.

Here are some of my favourites.





 I must use my yarn tomorrow and maybe some of the fabric.
