familiar


Familiar materials and techniques. Old thread, naturally dyed silk, paper piecing, hand stitching.


I've produced a lot of vibrant and varied colour in my dye bath this season. So much choice felt a bit overwhelming yesterday, so I picked the most monochrome selection for this little sample. The cream silk was dyed with rhubarb leaf, the grey from a saddened berberis dye bath.
