i like this very much. i can see all kinds of images in this. and will be curious to see which you accentuate ... or none... it has great potential which is what is so exciting and scary about starting something from the beginning.
here I am, smiling at myself, thinking "what will this have become when I come back?" I do like these dyed cloths, sometimes I see things in them after a long timeor when I show them to someone elseit is always exciting to visit here, I can feel all of us contemplating this one saying ummmmmm...ummmmma kind of meditation, maybe?;-pppppp
i was thinking as i looked at it that it would be good woven then when i enlarged it i saw that you had; good idea to leave the middle section unwoven - that might be your working area...isn't this fun...k.
it's 3:30 am and i got up to lookat it, in person, and then here.was thinking to edit the postout because it's not a good picbut i like your comments, so iwill leave it and just take anotherin better light...
Hey, Grace...mmmmmm..,yummy! I have an elderberry just a few feet away. Must go and harvest some leaves, bark and berries. I read yesterday that if you freeze the berries for use later they will give you a reddish brown.

penny ~ last year a HUGE crop ofberries, this year very few. amwaiting for the second round thatmight come with all this monsoonrain. thanks for freeze info.
I'm enjoying the beautiful bleeding of peaceful colors on your cloth. Sort of like wet on wet watercolor! I'm glad you did some weaving to frame the middle. I can't wait to see the next picture. I'm getting ready to post a progress photo too.(;~D) Debi
HI Grace - doing school prep work today, and feeling inspired. I want to do a natural dying segment in my Exploring the Natural World class. Wonder if you could recommend some books? I looked into getting the India book, but I see its not out yet. Can't find others or don't know what is good..... wish some of you cool dyers were closer, I'd invite you in to lead a workshop!Creative blessings..... Valerianna
valerianna...thanks for your voteof confidence, but i know next tonothing about it, am just beginning to learn. maybe ask kaite? yarngarden. also, theplants here are very different thanthe abundance of dye plants inMassachusettes. what i am doingis just from catching a little here and there from others' blogs.i do have Eco Colour...got it before they ran out, but have beenso absorbed in the cloth making that i haven't done more than look at the pictures...which are totallymagnificant. try kaite.
Thanks, Grace, will do!
Valerianna, India Flint's book is the best one around, email her or leave a message on her blog about it, she might know more about it's availability...k.
I wandered over from Kaite's blog and just wanted to tell you how much I like this piece. Nice, soft colour. It will be interesting to see how the piece evolves.
