Cornwall....

6th March 2017

Greetings from a vey blustery, showery Cornwall!!!

Have had a very enjoyable two days on our course, stitching, indigo dyeing and beach combing.

I dodged the showers yesterday and walked down to the beach in my new red wellies, so glad I took them as it was very muddy after all the rain!



I took some beautiful photos of the waves but they have just disappeared from my computer!!!

To make it worse I have deleted them from my disk!

Will have to try again today.

So I have no photos but will tell you what I have been doing. Lots of folding, stitching a variety of fabrics then placing them in the indigo vat and waiting very patiently for about 30 minutes before revealing the result. It is always a surprise and rather exciting!
We also have a pot of potassium for dipping the indigo cloth after it has been refolded and this is even more magical....

.....hopefully will have photos tomorrow to show you todays results.

Won't be down on the beach today as the forecast looks a bit grim!
