Over the last few years, I've become more and more interested in natural dyeing.
Being an Australian, I enjoy using eucalyptus and other local plant matter to achieve different colors.

Are there any other craftsters enjoy natural dyeing?
What sort of regional ingredients are you using in your neck of the woods?

I've done some with a friend who gathered pokeberry to ferment inside a pumpkin. This year that same friend collected black walnut for another fermenty batch.
I just checked out Harvesting Colour by Rebecca Burgess from the library, beautiful book. I only dabble though I do find it fun & interesting.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
