Well you wouldn't know it was spring from
the recent snow that we had but I have high
I have been putting sets together from all
of the eco fabric (from plant dyes) that I
had dyed a few months ago. I put them away
and make them cure for awhile and then take
them out and wash them. So far so good - no
color loss! Yay!
These were dyed from Pear, Pyracantha leaves ,
and prunus serrulata leaves - also some cherry
tree bark. All found here in Lancaster County
and I used no chemicals or metals in the dye
matter - all natural. I love the way the colors
came out and seem to blend together.
This Shibori piece was also dyed with Prunus
Serrulata leaves (fall). It will be interesting to
see what color they give in the spring and summer.
That's the fun part!
I used a piece of fabric dyed from Oak and
the Prunus leaves to make this little needle book.
The embroidery threads are all naturally dyed also.
All the above for sale in my Etsy shop
During the winter months I also love to bake....
I haven't made a Crumb cake in years! And
it was delicious! The cake part is made with
cream cheese and the top - a layer of chopped walnuts
on top and then the crumbs - OMG good!
And now that Spring is here the crazy crows are
back! Hundred and hundreds and the noise!
These are only two trees - they were on
eight others in the back by the farmer's field.
And then there was just one bird
at my little make shift feed (which of course the
squirrel knocked down) a White Throat sparrow
I'm keep looking for migrating birds but I haven't
seen any yet.
Back to cleaning out my Sewing Studio !
