dye plant journal - july


We've had a run of rainy weather here. June was very wet indeed. Happy slugs, not so happy dye plants...


I have had some success however, and thought I would make a simple record using my old flower press.


It will be good to start dyeing with these plants, I have a fine crop of Japanese Indigo ready to process.

:: There are still spaces available on my next Slow Stitch Workshop in August. Images from the last one here.
