Dyeing latest batch

This is my linen shirt that l eco-dyed and l promised to show you when l had embroidered it is  Very pleased with it.

Some more pieces to add to the skirk l am making from pieces of eco-dyed fabrics.

Here are the bundles l have not unwrapped for 3 weeks......l am getting more patient!

WOW.....this is a shirt from three weeks ago. eculyptus, a few twigs with lichen (which l picked up on my walks in the woods) on them, red maple leaves and a few purple iris flowers. Need to wash and iron it but it is looking gorgeous. So excited.

The gorgeous metal and rusty bits that have fell out of 2 of my bundles.

Sorry can't help it..that shirt again!
I don't think l will ever get over the excitmemt of this craft. thanks India for opening my eyes!
