Natural dyes – New baby

Leave a comment

My second grandchild arrived this morning around 4am.
It’s a 7lb girl!

I’ve been busy with too many projects. Was given a small loom and am trying that out. My long arm quilting is improving with practice, the bottom stitches are looking as good as the top.
I’m still collecting material for natural dyeing. Worked with magnolia seed pods which give a nice variety of peach and tans. Goldenrod gave a nice soft yellow. The most surprising effect was adding ammonia to turmeric.
Here are some pictures.

All though I loved the rust color reaction, it dried bright yellow.
