Rudbeckia picked as they started to fade.
Greens came out the pot.
Jewelweed was running rampant in the undergrowth
so some got picked.
See how different the colours are on cotton (on the right) and silk.
Leaves off the apple tree gave deeper colours in the first brew
but as I used the pot of dye a second time the colour came out paler.
All onion skins get saved in this house.
I do get faint complaints because our small freezer has more
dye stuff in it than actual food!
The vivid results surprised me.
My dyeing at the moment is an attempt to get solid colour
no leafy prints.
