see you are still tempted to use a little bit of your mauve colored batch. I'm glad because it looks lovely.

PIP PIP Hurrah! I knew there was a reason why I don't eat the pip...need to save it for dye.

Thanks... - going to explore different ways of dyeing mild+muted reds - because I like that (+ tea...) most I guess...

All this looks so good! I'd love to see what kind of red you would come up with.

i always find your work very meditative and am lost for words, i just gaze at it. I think i remember the brazilwood gives a purple, is that right? i must look it up.
enjoy your slide into Autumn...k.

It does look good, doesn´t it... ;) - I just spread a spoonfull of brazilwood splinters (right word? don´t know...)onto pre-mordanted fabric together with the smashed pip - thanks K, I certainly will - enjoy your spring flowers...

lovely. lavendar. ..even with the color saturation you've made it so soft and blended!

My apologies Heike; two weeks of night-shifts (yawn)leaves me low on resources. Situation remedied now though! I will be posting my dye experiments after my week at Ty Cariad too.

Thank you, Amelia.... - have to confess, though: didn´t like it much myself, ripped it apart - the now 2 pieces might lead somewhere different... ;)
