daffodil dye

My mother's day daffodils became a soft yellow on silk and wool. 

This is my welcome spring post, which seems a little premature as there is a blizzard going on outside the window.

    Wow, lovely, I am so pleased to have found your blog... I enjoy the natural dyes as well.

  2. i had not thought of dyeing with daffodils - thanks for the idea. when the ones in my front yard start to wane i will try this out.

  3. This yellow is gorgeous. So different to the chemical dyed colour...

  4. beautiful Claire - never thought of that - but you are always the lovely inspirational lady who comes up with fabulous ideas. Very subtle shades looks ready for some fab embroidery.
