color palettes

I guess I'm into color palettes these days ... after making the zine, they are most definitely into my mind right now.

I grabbed the most successfully dyed silk yarns I've had, and tried to mix & match to make nice color combinations.

  5. Hi Sonia, I have been trying to find a perfect shade of grey linen to do an embroidery project but it's very hard to come by. After reading your posts about natural dyeing I think I'll try dyeing a piece of white linen in eucalyptus. Mabey I'll get lucky! Thanks so much,
