naturally dyed and printed wool scarf this year; I had to break ice to rescue it from the pot.

And now, I will sign off, put my kitchen apron on, finish off the hanmade gifts I have been making…

May the joy and peace of Christmas be with you all through the Year 2013. Monika

      Wendy, thank you! It’s the same what I have been using recently – cotinus, budleja flowers, local eucalyptus and few oak, maple and berry leaves which haven’t left much print. All mordanted with sea water and milk, with a quick dip in some leftover alum and cooked in one quite old dyebath, mainly rust and tannin content.
