Thank you my friend ! That's not exactly what' s been happening, but oh well, what can I do ?
I've had so much joy reading through your entire blog. I've wanting to do so for so long and I finally took the time. I've been reading and learning about natural dyeing for a while now, but I want to take the next step and prepare for my first ever dye! I'm beyond excitement. There's only one step I want to go through and that's my backing up material, meaning good books! Do you recommend certain books?Thank you! Have a great day! :)
Thank you so much for your kind & supportive comment, Eva. Very glad I contacted you back. You'll get hooked ! Have a great day too !
these colors are amazing. Your work is beautiful.
Thank you very much, I appreciate your supportive words too !
Gorgeous colours, gorgeous textiles and gorgeous photos! I've found this blog and your work to be so very inspiring . . . I have just started using natural dyes again . . . there is nothing quite like taking fabric from the dye pot, carefully cutting away the stitched and bound thread and then seeing the results . . . I have achieved some beautiful colours on silk with the bark from an Iron bark (no mordant) . . . I will be stitching and screen-printing this shibori dyed silk in preparation for an exhibition opening on October 1st . . . thank you for reigniting my passion for natural dyes!
Oh my, well, thank you very much ! I'm so very happy my blog & experiments inspired/motivated you to start yours again, I'm truly honored ! I'll be popping by your blog ASAP ! Happy Natural Dyeing ! :)
Thanks Sonia, so lovely to get a message back. Yours is the first blog I have ever written a message on . . . please take this as a huge compliment!! I have added two photos to my blog of the silk I mentioned in my comment and have listed your blog as a source of inspiration. Would love to know what you think . . . Meg
Hi, I've notice you have gorgeous colours with natural dyeing. I tried to dye some silk with avocado skins because i found your colours absolutely beautiful. But I think i missed something because my silk is very pale and not pink at all. So i was wondering of you have any recipe or if you could tell me in a few words how you proceeded for your avocado skin dyeing ?Thanks :)
Thank you very much for taking time to leave a word or two, I would love to know what you think ! :)
