Downsizing and Shop Update

Been working in the studio today, going through supplies and have decided to downsize, I'll be listing more silk bundles, silk fiber packets, wool bundles, etc. tomorrow in the shop! The need to downsize has more with the need to focus and so long the extras are hanging out the desire to dye more fabric and fibers becomes diminished! 

Upcoming dye pots for this weekend include walnuts, curly dock, and indigo, and I can't wait.

Curly or sour dock, I have three beautiful stands in the yard right now, all parts are usable including the roots.

Experimenting

Experimenting with some charcoal and paint this afternoon, I tried this once before but wasn't thrilled with the results, the charcoal ended up as on big smear across the paper making the paint look dirty.  This time I used a harder charcoal pencil and the results were better.
