Found your blog through IF today. I just started my own experiments with Eco-dye techniques. Lovely blog, pictures and sentiments.

OK Velma

NOw, I have to go look up ice flowers in the Eco colour book - I have wool and silk rayon mordanting right now.

Your flower cloth and paper is delicious.

i had sorta given up on hatural dyes. a little bit. then i started playing around with rust and weather ways of marking cloth. then i "met" india. and it blew me away.
