I love nothing more than potting around the camp, rolling a couple of bundles then building the fire for my pot. We had a strong southerly winds that challenged us and a spot of rain. Bundjalung National Park has a creek that I collected the water for the pot, it is tannin and slightly bracken( not sure if this made any difference to the outcome) Dyed two lots of silk embroidery thread using lids to sandwich the leaves and thread.
I played with paper, wool blanket, milky merino stitched into infinity scarves, wool jersey and a long sleeve thermal just for me.

The milky merino takes colour up beautifully …. it is a pain that the edges roll so readily even after stitching. My other experiments are destine for my Etsy Shop they are cotton wool mix and have coloured up well considering the unknown wool content ( not stated on the label ) the other is a little silk blouse from my op shop.
