Crochet, Gardening and Dyeing Results!

20th August 2017

A dry, occasionally sunny day so did some tidying in the garden....

....one nearly full wheelie bin after 2 hours....


.....beautiful hydrangea...


....fabulous fuchsia...


....the virginia creeper is starting to change colour....


....this is a very prolific climber with a  delicate flower but don't know the name!


>>>>>>>>>

I have been watching you tube for flower patterns, these are samples and I have written instructions on each...


....using oddments from my stash, made up quite a few of these designs...


.....my silk strips, LOVE the colours and texture of the various silks...


....a square of cotton that I used to 'mop up'...


....really pleased with these results on cotton...



...unfortunately fabric dyed with Brusho cannot be washed, but good backgrounds for a mixed media piece, thank you Deborah O'Hare of Quilt Routes for sharing on Pinterest!


Great colour and texture on this scrim....


...Brusho colour is so vibrant, can't wait to use my fabrics!

Must make the dinner now....
