gathering

i was looking for a way to better carry home the johnny jump-ups and violas i found. 
i have a clutch of violas for ice flower dyeing that i added to yesterday. with the help of a wonderful basket.
it was beautiful in the cool sunlight, golden and windy.
cerulean
and time to gather hosta leaves, too

Ice flower dyeing? I know about snow dyeing, and just saw a demo on ice dyeing at a CA quilt festival.

Your photos are exquisite.

Found you in a Spirit Cloth link.

oh Velma - such a perfect purse for carrying treasures! The autumn colours are stunning and that crisp still blue sky is stunning; it is spring downunder and being a bit tempestuous as is its want
