Crochet added to a thrifted top, ready for eco dyeing

 
I have no idea what fibre this is, except for the silk yarn I used for the crochet trim, so the result could be interesting! Thinking of using Tasmanian blackwood leaves in the dyepot; I also collected blackberry, eucalyptus (2 types) and Tasmanian dogwood leaves this afternoon for the eco printing.

Market prep

  
Ready for The Stables Handmade Market ‘Spring Fling’ last Saturday. These items were offered for sale for the first time, plus some new eco fashions and more.

My stall today.

  
The Stables Handmade Market, St Marys, Tasmania, Australia.

Friendship day

 
Thank you to Judy Duckett of Bagdad Quilting Supplies for organising this. Attended by stitchers from all over northeastern Tasmania, it was a fun day and a profitable one too!

The beauty of silk

 
I use silk yarn to tie my bundles when I’m eco dyeing. This means I end up with a beautiful by-product that is also useful! The first of a series of silk crochet brooches.
