Photos!!

6th March 2017

These are photos from this morning, I am still having trouble storing the photos on my lap top (I need the skills of my eldest son!!!)

Stitched around my shape with double running stitch....


...pulled the thread tight...


....after being in the indigo vat.


...this is my favourite...



.....BUT it took 2 hours to unpick as I overstitched the outline!!!


Silk rods and silk dipped in potassium....


.....love this result, silk rods tied, indigo vat, re-wrapped using cotton yarn and dipped in potassium...


.....silk square tied, indigo ....


....re-wrapped and a quick dip in the potassium...


.....scrunched cotton-indigo....


....re-wrapped and dipped in the potassium pan BUT all the elastic bands snapped immediately.....


....so not quite the result I was hoping for...


....may put it in the indigo again ....

....folded..


...result...


....hemp from my trip to Vietnam, folded, banded...


....a viscose scarf after wrapping around a bottle and put in indigo vat...


...after rinsing, re-wrapping and a quick dip in the hot potassium solution!


I AM HAVING SUCH A GREAT TIME!!!

Dyeing with red cabbage this afternoon.....
