I am experimenting with eco dyeing. First step was the layering of cotton and silk fabrics with eucalypt leaves and small flower pods. The long plastic boxes that I had previously used for rusting have come in handy here.
I wet the layered bundle with a vinegar/water solution and weighed it down with tiles. I don't know how this will turn out as, at this point I'm not boiling this, just letting the weak Winter sun act on the ingredients.
I also put two pieces in jars with coffee leftovers and some vinegar and placed them in the sun.
Travel is an exciting & large part of my life, combined with creating fabric, stitching art quilts & enjoying textile traditions around the world.
I work in the quilting industry; exhibit, judge, curate, tutor & write.
These are some of the threads of my life.
