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

  1. Beautiful results,Monika! Thank you for sharing them! Would you be able to identify the plants and others that gave the colour?

    The peace of Christmas be yours, too


    • 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.
