I have a date with dyeing this week. First up is more dyeing with red cabbage. It's a dyestuff I've used many times before, and I love the subtle blues and greys it gives, even if it isn't particularly lightfast. The colors all together remind me of the blue jays that are at my feeder right now.
I made my daughter a mushroom toy a few years ago out of the pretty blues, that has since faded to bluish-grey. It's still pretty though, and between you and me, I enjoy watching the color transition over time.
This week will be a busy one for me so I'm not sure how much you'll hear from me. Hopefully I'll be back soon to tell you that I remembered my magic cabbage combo and have skads of pretty blue silk on hand. Hopefully.
Have a good start to the week, everyone.
