Last thursday we were inside for the whole day, too hot to be outside. French houses have thick walls and when you close the shutters, temperature inside is cool.
I also have some problems with my google account, I lost my cookies , so i have to sign in and sign in again and so on. That is the reason that i did not comment on your blogs! But i did read them, be sure of that! I will try to comment as an anonymous to let you know that i am still there.
But weather is perfect for some solar dyeing.
I bought India Flint's book about eco dyeing. A great book and so inspiring.
It is very simple: you fill a jar with some dyeing plants like tagetes, onion skins or apple tree leaves.
You put some fabric that you mordanted with alum and water . Then let the sun do her work........
Inside this jar are flowers from hollyhocks, the dark, black ones.
Water with some vineyard. To modifie the color you can add also some nails or some copper coins.
Next time the results........
