Works in Progress

Stitching and dyeing are both underway. Stretched on my Mum's old freestanding needlework frame is an indigo piece I wrapped and dyed in Kutch. I am adding stitches to it little by little (slow work because my fingers are full of hacks due to chilly weather).

Yesterday was my long-awaited first dyeing day at home. Cotton perle, boucle silk yarn, various weights of wool yarn and some linen and khadi cotton fabrics all took their turn in the dyepot, followed by khadi and other handmade papers. I ran out of space to hang everything up but I'll fix that for next time. I was in blue heaven!
