I had such a lovely time last night - wonderful company and natural dyeing = awesome.
we mainly focused on indigo dyeing and there were a few other pots of natural dye brewing. it's always nice to be around like-minded friends who share the enjoyment of each other's results and experiments. we will have to do it again really soon. thanks again julie for hosting it!
I hope you all have wonderful plans for the weekend - perhaps with your dad. I will secretly do a post on the weekend for john. he doesn't visit the blog often (so he might not notice) he isn't a fan of having his picture on the blog. some notes on the canada post strike - if all goes well they will be up and running by thursday - I can't begin to tell you how much stress it's put on me, but I must say I have the best customers who are so understanding.
have a wonderful weekend friends-thanks for visiting! xxa

  6. Lovely indigo! I was looking around for a local green indigo class in SF but learned I had to be 50 to take it, darn! I will learn one day! I can't wait to see how the intense color shows up in your work.

  7. What gorgeous indigo blues! My favorite by far. Looking forward to seeing what you make with these beautiful textiles.
