Last February (February 2011 that is) I wove up a length of fabric out of wool and silk. The yarns I used were in their natural off white pristine state, which means……. dye!! I have an aversion to white, white anything! Who knows why…….. maybe because I’m a naturally grubby person?
I dyed it with cochineal.
I can’t weave or bundle right now, but I can sew! This fabric jumped off the shelf into my arms last night and said “Do me do me!!” So I did!
The process transported me into creative fantasyland….. and all sorts of projects leapt into my brain. And because it was ‘fantasyland’ all of the things I imagined were much more finished/polished than my usual creations.
