colours

grey, yes, screams for colour. I washed some of my summer dyed cloths, tore bits, layered rags and now I'm practising stitching Round and roundand I finished(yes, finished!)two pouches, the blackbird for my brother and swinging my arms.


practising buttonhole edging, getting better by the stitch



it is much too hot for the time of year, the trees are undecided about how to deal with it. some think it is spring, new leaves, flowers etc, some are tentativeley changing colour. the mulberries are still in full green leaf, anemones are dotting the grasses, lilacs think it is eastertime, some plants have flowered four times this year. And the olives are on strike for the third or fourth year in a row.


cotton sheets and rags. indigo, cochineal bought a while ago in a quest for red, black eyed susan and mixes

Lots of lovely color hanging on that line, Manya. I really like the little bags you made. Blackbirds are a favorite of mine.

Hope the weather will be 'normal' soon your place - these days, one always starts worrying a bit about irregularities ...
