mulberry dyeing I have been doing. I seem to be on a roll with this colour at the moment. I am collecting the hollyhock flower heads as they fall off and they are a similar colour too.
Now to experiment some more, move on to exercise 2. It involves using pale coloured pre-dyed fabrics. I have a really good scraps collection so might trawl through them to see if I can find enough to try for a sample piece. I am going to play around with log cabin or strip piecing, it will depend a little on the pieces I decide to use. Some of my scraps are rather small. I tend to keep things when I should really throw them away, so I am hoping that this time I can actually use some.
We are lucky here in Melbourne, the weather is being variable and we are getting relief from the extreme heat, unlike other parts of the country. I can contemplate actually doing some more experimenting and enjoying the lazy summer days.
