pomegranate dye

 
I found some beautiful pomegranates in the market in Bradford.


One has been gracing the mantlepiece for the last few days.


I collected the skins for the dye bath and used some pre-mordanted scraps of fabric and yarn. Boiled it all up for an hour or so. I like the slightly pinkish tone of the silk.

The snow has all gone now. No more enhanced brightness from outside the window for my photographs!

  2. Yes, the snow is brilliant for livening up my pics too. Now it's back to gloomy grey rain and the necessity of Picnic editing to brighten my pics up!
