Coreopsis comfort

Just fresh off the loom
Boucle mohair brushed, merino and bfldyed naturally with buckthorn and is sooo soft and user friendly....very onto more 
Eco prints and another blanket ...I actually took an order for a lap blanket in naturals so am spinning some brown english leicester and dyed so e brushed mohair in so e walnut hulls from a year ago....the mold on the top was quite dramatic, but I believed Jenny Dean who said it helped to darken the dye, so I sieved it off, and it is a wonderful rich brown....will show when it dries, and of course no mordanting!!!! I am so speedy, anything quick and easy is a good thing...the weather has been very hot but amazingly it hasn't deterred me from wool ...apparently obsession wins over heat ...who knew! Lo

Coreopsis comfort

In love with the coreopsis color ..just used the flowers and tipped it with an after was quickto change   from yellow to this peach orange lucky to have been given a large patch
So am working between felting, eco prints and dyeing naturally and weaving...not to mention food 
from the garden to be dealt with, life is full and feels good.
