Do you remember my sleepless night? Well I won’t hold it against you if you have forgotten, but as a result I produced these
They should have stayed bottled for longer, but we opened them on my recent course. Here are just a few of the results.
These are rose leaves that have become imprinted into the fabric,
and these are from nothing other than paper fasteners. They worked, that was the important thing, and now they can be developed further. If you would like to try some safe experiments, maybe with a child under supervision, let me know and I’ll give you the ‘recipe’ for something that will definitely work.
Oh, and do you remember the ‘Crumbs‘? Here’s the result
Would every one please re-post or re-blog, and ask others on your blog to do the same and then the same again.
If this carried on and on then these posts will go around the UK, USA, Australia or any country and therefore there will be no place missed and for what ever reason we might be able to bring a lost child back home.
Having just returned from a few days teaching dyeing, you have no idea how appropiate this is. In fact, once the photographs are fully downloaded I will probably have enough pictures of purple for one a day for a month!
This one was taken earlier today. After dyeing we decorated the flora in an attempt to dry as much in the sun as possible. These two ‘got away’!
Full details of the challenge, and lots more entries, can be found here. Other photographs taken during the same dyeing session can be found here and here.
Yes, they do look like crumbs, don’t they, but they are in fact the contents of a teabag!
Just one of the things I’m happily playing with while I’m teaching at Urchfont. I’m there for the last time, so my camera will be as hot as the dyeing water. Back soon with more pictures here and on Just Snaps.
As a child there was one smell of summer that I dreaded. It was bound to set off my hay-fever, and although I’ve grown out of that now, my feeling of dread has not lessened. I hate the smell.
In the UK it was once the tradition to mark the boundary of your suburban property with a hedge. These were usually kept neatly trimmed, square and ‘proper’. Occasionally, though, these sharply edged perimeters would become ragged, and, horror of horrors, produce ‘flowers’. Hedges are not quite so prominent now, but they are beginning to come back into fashion. Sadly, I have noted one over the fence….. I’m not bothered about the fact that it is untidy, it’s the fact that it is in flower that scares me. If I hear the shears I’ll be closing all windows and doors, and hiding in a cupboard for a day or so (well, maybe that’s just a little bit of an exaggeration). The culprit?
It’s no good, I have to confess that I have a problem. I’ve suspected it for a while, but today it became very apparent. I’m not sure that it should be called an ‘addiction’, but I suggest you keep yours well locked up if I’m around.
So, what is the problem?
None of the above
I can assure you that these didn’t last long at all….. I have no idea how many I devoured!
Well, I couldn’t sleep. I didn’t go to bed until after midnight, but I had a recipe going round and round in my head, and I knew that it would carry on like that unless I did something about it. All was still and quiet, so I could concentrate, and that’s what I did.
A little bit of this, a little bit of that – and quite a lot of the other, you know the sort of thing I mean. By 3.15 it was all bottled, and now we just have to wait.
Now you didn’t expect it to be edible, did you? It’s a wait and see recipe, so that’s the cooking part. It won’t be opened until my dyeing course which happens in just 10 days. It will be quite exciting to see what has happened.
That’s all I have time for now, you see the milk is just about to boil over…….
Well, I forgot that it was Friday, so I’ve already posted today, it’s here, and I hope you will take a look, I think you will like it. The entry to the photo challenge is a little ‘suspect’, though. Does it fit the theme? I’ll leave you to judge
