So much color around here right now.
Even with all of the gardening I did squeeze a little dyeing in the last week or so.
I started by dyeing another color wheel. This one is with bright dyes as opposed to this one. The blue green is off. Not sure how that happened.
Then I dyed a large mandala.
I had some vintage napkins I wanted to dye a certain color of green. I dyed three batches before I came up with the color I wanted. The first three were way too blue! But now I do have a nice selection of greens.
And here are the results on the vintage napkins.
I really love the vintage napkins because you never know how they are going to dye. They are so much prettier with color than just plain white where their pattern hardly shows.
Other color include our currants.
The astilbes blooming in the shade garden.
Here is our Brandywine viburnum. In the Fall this bush will sport pink and blue berries while in the winter the leaves will turn dark maroon.
I was surprised to see this Louisiana iris that was blooming outside my window.
And the lovely coneflowers are all starting to bloom.
Well, that’s all the color for today. Hope it’s colorful in your home. Thanks for dropping by.
