fairy cloth

A pile of dyed strips is like a plate of chocolate chip cookies -- they're both simply irresistible. The pansy on the newly-woven cloth is from the very plants that were used to dye it. Quite amazing.


They belong together. I honestly didn't see it coming. Now I wonder if a trilogy is in the works? Makes me think of a fairy bed of soft moss and maybe someone looking out the flower window. I am enchanted.


Happy weekend. xo

Stunning colours, so soft and subtle.

perfect mates. i would be tempted to stitch the reflection shapes onto the cloth with soft colored thread.
this pair must have a tender story.

Lyn, thanks -- I'm feelin' it!

Deanna, I absolutely love your idea of stitching reflection. Reflecting on reflection. Thank you, Deanna!

"Enchanted" is a lovely thing and how wonderful Deanna's idea is.

The colors are so soft almost a whisper. :)

pansies. my most favorite flower in the
world. seeing your pansies dyed strips
pretty much sets that feeling in cement.
so amazing.

Marie, waiting to see where it goes -- get sort of dazed when I'm under enchantment! Ha.

Cristina, thank you -- and after seeing what a great dye plant they are, they're pretty high up on the list for me, too!
