You would think that this piece of rotting spruce
with it's lovely earthy red colour
would have created the colour
of yesterday's moon.
But no, not at all
what it helped produce were these soft
Thanks to Grace and Françoise and Diane
I now use slow cookers as my dye pots.
They seem to maintain just the right temperature.
The markings are glorious
the colours are soft
For someone who tends to cover
everything in stitch
it's going to be hard to
stitch lightly and resist covering up these glorious markings.
