hi everyone,
we had a lovely weekend in toronto - lots of sunshine and late afternoons in the park. john and I were saying to each other - in the past when we would meet at a bar or for coffee after work - now after work we meet at the park. there's so much joy the children have when they play. I slept in a bit yesterday morning, but awoke with lliam whispering in my ear "happy mother's day". life can't get any sweeter.
one of my favourite colours is grey - I like wearing the colour grey and looking at the colour grey - one of the reasons I liked b&w photography as a teenager was how many tones of grey that could be seen and achieved in a photograph. I was happy to achieve this warm grey with natural dye. I made scarves, and dyed the organic linen canvas and really like it in bag and pouch form.
I hope your having a great start to your week - talk to you soon. xxa

  10. I start to appreciate the colour grey more and more. I used to only pick the very bright colours, but mixing it with grey just works perfectly.

    You made some lovely items. Beautiful.

  11. i am a big grey fan too!!
    i think most of what i dyed last week has a hint of grey except the indigo.
    love that you already sewed a pouch.

  12. thanks everyone
    glad there are plenty of grey lovers out there

  13. well i will chime in and say that i love grey too - i can see that is a popular opinion. i love to wear a lot of grey and then add a punch of colour - i suppose grey is my black, which i never wear. that scarf is just gorgeous.

  14. i really love your dyeing work, these are beautiful.
