Yesterday, appropriately bathed in sunshine, I started three solar dyeing jars.
One contained Ivy berries (Hedera Helix).
One was topped with bark that had fallen from a Silver Birch in our garden.
One contained the skins of red onions and some fresh leaves of sorrel.
They all had a mixture of fabric scraps, some yarn and threads.
I didn't really know what I was doing BUT it was one of those occasions where I had to stop thinking and planning and just had to get on and do it...
Now I just plan to be patient...and if it doesn't work I'll just try again!
