the light..there's a lizard for you on mythcolour:-))))))))))
the mountains (hills?)look as if they could belong herethe morning light, tooif the fence was a stone wall...I would like to see the cloths, closer
did you use cotton or silk cloth to dye? the colour might come out stronger on silk. Interesting light on the landscape, looks like a painting...k.
kaite, i have been just tryingmuslin. and i have to admit thati have not been at all conscientious. i just plop thingsin pint canning jars. ive been keeping up with your dying suggestions on your blog and will become serious about my efforts any minute. what is interesting is that the sun is so intense here, it decomposes the plant substance pretty quickly and that's when something interesting begins to happen. also, i have stuck a little rusted something in to many. and put things in a rusted cast iron pot.the very best thing i got was when all the water evaporated out of the cast iron and the piece that had beet stems dried completely out. it's black and grey with a beautiful pattern.the LIGHT happens oddly like thatsometimes in the mornings afterthose long night rains. i don't know what it is. makes me want to study whatever that science would be....sometimes it's copper/amber.i will be back over to "your house"and make some notes for my nextattempts at the dyeing. i reallyneed to learn.
What a restful space...I haven't gotten to setting up my dye shelf yet, hopefully this weekend.
deb ~ i will come by and see if you did. would be great to seeothers shelves...is it really ashelf? guess i will find out!
