Enjoyed gathering materials for eco dyeing while Ian did some work on our house. Wild flowers, fungi and a marauding insect also make an appearance! A beautiful spring afternoon.


my crochet woodland series was deliberately made to resemble (not replicate) organic forms

i knew i had some more photos, but for a long time the above photo was the only one i could find

then last week i finally discovered them on a cd in a drawer in my studio

it was difficult to photograph them because of the artificial light, except for the photo at the top of this post (i took this one on our front verandah)

i do think they look great displayed on the branch though

the woodland series is in storage at the moment – maybe one day soon i’ll unpack them all and take some new photographs (in natural light, like the first one)
