It felt good to be stitching again after some time off during which I mysteriously picked up some knitting needles to bring one neglected sweater a little closer to completion. My eyes need a rest now though.
These are the amaranth and lemon verbena dye bundles after steaming a few times (separately) -- see how the red amaranth stalk has lost all its color? The lemon verbena looks promising, too. I'll find a place for these to weather outside for a month or so before unrolling them.
The cloth pieces in both bindweed dye-pots look much different from last year's. These are coming out this weekend and the dogs can't wait, they love the smell.
Thanks for coming by and happy weekending. xo
