swapping from the blue of cobalt oxide to the dyeing blue of indigo… beautiful still sunny morning for it!
when the fabric comes from the vat first it is bright green, the oxidising process and solar energy/sunshine turn it slowly blue…. a variety of blues come from fabric, age of vat and the length of time left in….all as addictive as firing a kin !!
and dyes…so delicious! a small panel of linen folded and blocked and into indigo for 10 minutes ….love textiles!
pumpkin scones for afternoon tea..wrapped in shibori cloth…how amazing is that colour?(scones i.e.!) the making,holding, giving, presenting of even the smallest things is a pleasure of life…..aaaand the eating!!yum yum (especially with a swipe of butter and a cup of tea )
