Have I shown you all the blues yet I wonder? I used to use this blog as a record of all my makings but more and more I seem to use Instagram. I've done a lot of indigo and shibori dyeing this year - kickstarted by a workshop earlier in the year at the Handmakers Factory, run by bekind textiles. I had previously dyed with indigo when I was a member of the Natural Dye Group at the Botanic Gardens, but needed a push to get me going again (and this was my year of making time to do stuff again). Since then I've dyed lots of serviettes,
and so on.
Then a friend asked me to host an indigo play date at her house so a group of us dyed scarves and tea towels,
and finally at craft camp earlier this month I ran another indigo dyeing session.
And then I went and sewed a whole lot of blue clothes.
And one colourful dress.
Next blog post - the textile arts retreat in Ubud! I get on a plane the day after tomorrow and I cannot tell you excited I am.
