Working with nature

I made fabric postcard with hand-dyed fabrics, and free-wheeling machine stitch to reflect my love of the landscape and its wild fauna growth.

At the moment my mind is focussed on eco-dyeing.  The spontaneity of colour from nature’s leaves is alluring.   The process demands all my patience whilst I wait for the bundle of silk and leaves to batch in the winter sun.   I am told to leave it alone for at least 7 days before its unwrapping.   Mmmm,  its going to be a long 7 days and 7 nights!
