Washed and Pressed...

Here's a quick update on my newly dyed hankies...
They have all been washed and pressed, and now need their Lissi labels adding.
Here's the whole batch together...
And here they are in their sets of three - each set will contain one solid dyed apricot, one leaf print, and one solid dyed with leaf print over. All dyed from eucalyptus on the finest softest silk.

They will be available for purchase in a couple of weeks!

Snow is Back!!

I couldn't believe it when I opened my curtains this morning to find another good 4-5inches of snow! There was nothing at all the night before and I thought I must have been sleep walking through my wardrobe to Narnia instead :)

Here's the view up our street just as night time is settling in again....

I really like snow but i think we've seen enough of it for this winter and can't wait for summer!!!

Work in Progress

Where does the time go?! I can't believe we are about to begin the final week of January already.

So although I have plenty of other things to be doing like making curtains, helping my other half write his dissertation, oh and house work, of course, I decided that I must have some me time and dabble with some dyeing!

For spring I am introducing a range of handkerchiefs so i decided to make a start on these today. Today's selection will be in peachy tones, with eucalyptus prints. I'm thinking of sell them in packs of three's.

Hopefully I'll be able to photograph them in finished glory next weekend :)
