the lighting in today's pictures is so pretty. and the gradation of color on the wool is beautiful! especially the one with pinks and greens. yes, this sunny and mild autumn is to be savored!


so many great photos, and wonderful results you are getting with your dyes - i'm very jealous!

ps - thanks for your comment on my post, you are very quick. i didn't think i had even finished posting it yet!


I was also very taken with eva's leaf prints today. If only I could justify buying another tinctory necklace...
I cannot wait to see how yours turns out.

I came across your blog by happy circumstance and have so been enjoying your photos and information about dying your fabrics. Your photos are stunning and convey your stories so well. I hope it is ok to have added you to my bloglist..I will keep checking back to see how things are turning out for you.


What a fabulous post!

So cool, Margie!

Lovely photos - such inspiration! Jamie V in MT


Your backyard is the greatest laboratory ever ! I can't help imagining your neighboured squirrels assisting you with the walnut dyeing ... and drinking a drop of beer in secret :D
Wish your Sunday will be "inundated" with colors ! :)

so glad a clement weather yesterday allowed you to have such a fun dyeing session :) the lichen dyed fibers must be soooo beautiful seen "in persons". Have a creative Sunday ahead, my friend oxoxo hugs

Goodness, this is just beauty. I've been waiting for a little rain around here to make it easier to pry the lichens off the trees. Our tree trunks are green with the stuff, but it's hard to extract when it's been so dry. I hope my results are as fabulous as yours.

You are a magician :) Can't wait to dye some stuff with you next year!


ahh, such lovely colours. science-art-magic. :)


Have you ever tried Turmeric? Its the most brilliant gold/orange.... and works so easily. Also gum leafs. I'm not sure if customs would let me but I could try to send you some from here (Australia) ....

Julie Shackson

Wonderful colours!


I can read and look at this forever.......*sigh* canĀ“t get enough of this beauty!!!!

Hi, I'm from Devon, Uk and have an apple orchard and as we harvest this year I've collected fallen lichen with the thought of dyeing with it. I don't have much knowledge about dyeing but am very excited to see the lovely colours of your fabric. Does anybody know anything about dyeing yarn with lichen? Would this work?...any resources/ links? Thankyou xxxx
