The weather is turning cool this week and may even tip just below freezing overnight. Time to bring the color indoors and find a suitable warm cozy place for the indigo and woad fermentation vats. I am thinking the warm south facing kitchen will be the best choice. That is where I was was shooting the product shots for my etsy shop. It was also a wonderful surprise to see my favorite etsy shop couple as the featured sellers today.
This was really such a happy colorful family of stones and pebbles that it will be hard for me to send them out into the world.
ps there are still some beautiful hand dyed stones and scarves in the shop. This might be the last update before the season of giving. If you would like any of the bamboo pebbles turned in to brooches just send a little message after purchase.
so many fantastic giveaways happening this week I decided to add to the fun.
Tell me your favorite thing about the autumn season by midnight sunday and you could win a few natural dyed crochet covered pebbles and your very own spore print ( if I can figure out a way to mail them without getting smudged).

I have noticed that my most recent natural dyed crochet covered stones and bamboo pebbles are reflecting the change in light and air that come with august in ontario. This week I can say summer is starting to slowly wave goodbye.
I was happy to check in with my fine feathered friends on Sunday morning at bookhou when I delivered a little pile of naturally dyed crochet covered stones. They are doing really well and If you are in the toronto area the show will be up for another two weeks. In fact you are all invited to the closing party on the 22nd of July from 7 to 9 pm where you will have a chance to meet geninne, arounna, myself and my friend sonia who will be visiting from france.
I crocheted a few stones for my daughter Tamara's birthday. One of them was a variation of the pudding stone and I called it the mermaids net. It is a loosely crocheted net with small opening to capture the sea glass and smooth pottery pieces that the sea gives as gifts.
