this is my past week's adventure, with a little gardening and seedling transplanting on the side....dyed with madder and cochineal , the top photo, finished a spring iris coloured blanket, with brushed mohair and mushroom dyed warp, cooking up some madder warp for the next blanket and dyeing some lamb's wool that is old but still looks good....local lamb which is about fifteen years old, also dyed some in a vat with lac/madder combo, came out a lavender pink spring is definitely showing itself and the greens and pink blossoms are for more dyeing and some eco printing.  New plants to try for eco printing....and more to be learnt....must keep notes, apparently I have no goal of consistency in my work, working on a "wing and a prayer" seems ot be my natural course, of course, I do jot down notes in my journal but don't seem to read them when I am working,!! Lol. It does make for a lot of variety and endless lessons.....
