jar magic

I have been stuffing jars with silk thread and tissue silk in the Stuff Steep and Store method albeit with less store than some. I leave them on the balcony rail in the sun where they get visited by one of our cats.

on guard ….. keeping watch over my jars of goodness #solardye #silk #naturaldye

This afternoon seemed like the right time to open two jars, one was Coreopsis flower with copper pictured third from the left {above}  and the other Montbretia flowers second from the left which are a weed here. Pictured on my new apron that has been made from an opshop (suspect) silk nightshirt, it has two pockets one especially for my trusty secateurs.


Mono Printing Workshop


I am off to Mt Tamborine tomorrow to my friend Bec Andersen’s Studio to part take in a Sandra Pearce workshop Mono Printing . I am a bit excited as it is a different medium for me, I have got a stash of leaves and flowers to take with me but other than that I will keep you posted with my out comes.  Mean while I will un bundle two silk pinafore/ aprons tomorrow… what will that bring ??
