Since we had Dandelion Italiano the other night, I decided to stitch a little dandelion book cloth. My wool choices for the bottom layer have all been eco-dyed -- the top right is from red wine, the blue is from black beans and the rust from onion skins -- but the other two elude me for now.
You can see in the photos how much dandelion leaves shrink during the cooking process for Dandelion Italiano, but I assure you it is worth the effort.
The view out the sewing room window a little while ago -- and it's still snowing. Happy May Day!
