in and out

madder+sumac leaves+a pinch of alum, next is madder+rusty nails, pomegranate rinds all on dmc cotton yarn in solar pots, simmered a short while and left for a week
a seam apocalypse
madder +iron on the brownish, the other is cochineal. I'll let them cure awhile
I'm in and out, telling stories here and there
the needle is dancing in and out learning new dance moves
things are jumping in and out of pots
(its good when I'm away because I can't poke them)
blogger is in and out, making it difficult to answer comments and see other blogs
thank you so much for your comments.

Hi Manya glad you had a good time in the UK.
I love your dyeing.
A week! I leave mine in for months! Difference between the strength of the sun in Greece and the UK I suppose.
Still lovely results.

helen, yes, I did have a good time, thanks. The sun is definitely strong here, (it's turning me red!)and I put the pots on stone which gives off heat during the night, the liquid gets too hot to keep your hand in.
