dyeing

It was a glorious sunny day but Jed didn't want to go to the beach or for a bikeride. He wanted to do the dyeing project we've been talking about for weeks. And so!

For a small person that loves crafting, colour, mixing and muslin play cloths...this was an afternoon of heaven.

Very proud craftsperson at the end of a busy afternoon.

My heart was glad to see these colours against the blessing of a blue sky that we had today, instead of the forecasted rain...hoorah!


Aucklander's: I will be at the Titirangi Mum's Craft market on Saturday and a few of you were asking where to buy GrowMama gear in a retail outlet-check out Lets Go Retro on Swanson Rd. Etsy, felt and trademe will all be re-stocked next week. (I sincerely hope.)

May your week be all you need it to be!

  3. Ha! We used the old bog standard Dylon dyes that i used in my teenage hippy tie dying days...and now we are experimenting with local natural dyes, which is what i used in Europe. Much fun. Concoctions, potions and experiments...
