My year-end dyeing did not yield anything exciting, but I learned some things and had fun. Mold was beginning so I unwrapped everything today. So that is only 4 days under pressure. The flowers did nothing. The eucalyptus was not too good -I need to learn more about preparation perhaps. This fabric is raw silk, first dyed in fresh parsley, and then after bundling, it was put in a tumeric bath (thus the bright yellow). This was my first time with tumeric and alum and cream of tartar, and it seems to be quite fast after washing. This piece is still wet, so it will change when dry.
Leaves on the left are black walnut that were frozen when green; the ones on right are oak leaves picked in late fall and frozen.
