The start of another destashing session... It's surprising how quickly new projects crowd out the old. So often I think I'll work a little more on a piece, maybe try to develop the color more, but the day is already filled with other work, so I put it away for "later". Later doesn't come.  The sensiible thing is to gather up some of these and list them for sale as they are, spots, speckles, and all.


 


Groups of indigo dyed napkkins. Most have a little dyeing mistake, but the I think the fabrics are still lovely.



 

Gathering linen

 

In the moments between visitors, phone calls and household chores, I sorted, washed, and ironed  some odds and ends of indigo dyed linen fabric.

These are some of the leftovers from experiments and bits of fabrics I dyed and put away thinking I might use them in the future. They add up quickly.


 


 Yellow and indigo moon.


 


None of these are "perfect", but they're still pretty good.



Id like to be able to mimic these patterns!

June morning


It's so fine to step outside barefoot,without a sweater, and get started right away. On most mornings,this means just wandering around in wonder and amazement.for awhile.


The backyard is not big, but the cherry tree doesn't seem to mind.



The blackbirds and squirrels .are ready to pounce!
