Time to do more vegetable dying next week.....



Good Morning all

Well having spent some wonderful days so far thinking of new designs for next year, I have come to the conclusion I would like to hand dye a few more bits of my precious vintage French linen.

I am thinking like a beautiful duck egg colour so I am researching what I can get these results with.  I may have to go foraging in the New Forest near us for some plant life or see if I can buy a plant to do this.....

I really would like to do some butterflies with embroidery for a sampler and really believe that with some shear vintage linen dyed and embroidered it will look life like and beautiful....

I can see the colour in my head and have mixed it with water colour paint to see that it can be possible.  I really need three of me and four would be nice..... although not sure my husband would agree!!!  If I did not have to sleep I may get lots more done...



Slightly lighter like the eggs above but with a colour that will show white embroidery.



Have a wonderful day and Happy Stitching!
