red cabbage on silk

This is a piece of raw silk dyed in fresh red cabbage with the center portion tied 3 times.  Alum and Cream of Tartar were added to the dyebath.  The yellow center is cut out from a linen placemat that was dyed in a marigold flower dyepot.  Alum and Cream of Tartar were added to that bath as well.  (sometimes i just want to get color quick and don’t want to do the pre-mordanting)
