Hello,I found your blog yesterday, and have to tell you I am completely in awe of your work. It is so delicate, intricate - and touches the heart - you have a rare gift, and I'm so glad you share it!Cheers!
can’t wait to see what you do with this!
Its good to find another blog about natural dyeing, I liked your post on log wood. What bothers me about log wood is that it comes from the heart wood of trees so it means cutting a tree down to get it. have you tried ferrous sulphate and tannine, I've managed to get quite a range of greys and blacks from mixing them.
this looks fabulous - look forward to seeing more
Hi, Cathy. I just looked at your shop. I think you need to rename it "Gallery of Sold in a Second Items" - not that I'm jealous or anything! :-)
Jenny - re: logwood. My understanding is the tree is not felled for the dye. The tree is felled due to forest management. The dye heartwood is extracted and the timber used. I obtain my dye products from a supplier who I believe sells responsibly harvested dye goods. Here's a link that may interest you:mamadoc.org/logwood
Work in progress looks interesting. I had to smile at Morna's comment. I now have my BC shop open, and I'm not at all jealous either ;-)
Morna and Kaye, I am very very grateful! I must visit your new shop Kaye, will do that soon. You both make lovely work, sincerely.
your collection is very inspiring - I am so curious how the result will look like!
