Today I did a quick drape of a custom wedding blouse I am going to make tomorrow.
I am back to dyeing cloth this week.
There’s something in this process that brings back childhood memories of mud pies, grass and rose petal soups. As if making princess dresses weren’t enough.
I can’t describe the feeling, work and play mix into one as I brew the potion-like concoctions necessary for extracting the color from the plant.
