out of & into the dye-pot

out of the dye-pot: Two pieces of cloth landed on the latest Anthropologie catalog as I was clearing off the table for dinner the other night -- my work table and the kitchen table are one and the same, sort of a pain sometimes. The three of them looked so beautiful together . . .


The pleated-looking silk was dyed with old "dragon's blood" incense. The fluffy silk organza was dyed with a clivia blossom and leaf, wrapped in purple hemp string. I love their textures as much as their beautiful peach and pink colors. So soft and cloud-like. And nest-like, too. These won't be ironed just yet.

into the dye-pot: Dried lavender flowers (forgotten but found, from 2007!) and white linen.

They look like they are ready to float away sky high! I remembered you did the one with dragon's blood incense. Are you happy with it? Hugs Nat

Nat, yes -- dragon's blood -- whodathunk? I adore it, a beautiful peach. xo

Deb, just want to hurl myself onto it -- too bad it's such a tiny piece . . .

these look delicious! what will you do with them?

Cindy, not sure but they'd be nice clouds on a piece -- maybe something along the line of a sun, moon, or stars!
