OK, the title is lame, sorry, I think my brain cells are melting away ! Here are results & photos today of a dyeing I've made last week. (or was it the week before, I can't remember anymore. (see, no more brain cells, oy !) Wait ... let me see, we picked the immortelle flowers on ... May 31st. OK, that was even longer ago than I thought ...
So I used the flower tops only, and this is what it gave. (note that we dyed with immortelle flowers two years ago ... already)
on this photo (above) you can see :
cotton, wool fabric, silk fabric, linen,
cotton lace, wool yarn & silk yarn
for the linen (left) I had used the flowers
(used to make the dyebath), bundled, tied & dyed
in the front : silk yarn
in the front : wool yarn
As you can see on some of the photos, I had made small bouquets of immortelles, that are finishing to dry. I'll soon give one away to my mom, and one to my mother in law, and will keep the last one for me.
Don't they look like little sunshines of their own ? Thank you beautiful immortelles for providing such a warm color, and such a strong (curry like) fragrance !
Happy Summer OR Winter solstice to you all, may this new season bring you warmth for your soul or/and for your body !
