This time of year is dear. All the many things I hoped to do this summer are rushing at me. I'm making lists and even prioritizing, and toward the top is dyeing with the indigo plants growing in my garden. From reading about dyeing with fresh indigo leaves, I've learned it's a process that should be done all on one day -- from harvesting the leaves to the final dip. The cottons are soaking in soy milk and the silks are ready to go. If I can find the other necessary ingredient, the one that turns the dye-bath from blue to yellow (I forget what it's called), I'll be in business.
I'm starting to look at flying dreams again, a magic cloth piece I started a few years ago. I think I may be going back to this again soon, it sort of feels like it's time.
We're starting to see glimmers of golden light here now -- I'm almost ready to let go of green and surrender to gold! Thanks for visiting and happy weekending. xo
