saresmoore I love this! 4mo
Lindy @saresmoore Thanks! Making an indigo vat intimidated me, but I‘m glad I decided to try it because the results are satisfying. I started at 10 am yesterday and wasn‘t finished until 8:30, with only a couple of short breaks to eat. Listened to a big chunk of 4mo
saresmoore My goodness, that‘s some dedication! I‘m still tempted to try it for myself. 4mo
Lindy @saresmoore I‘m going to heat up the vat again today to do a little more. I already have two handkerchiefs, 12 napkins and a two-metre length of muslin... but the blue is so pretty I want more. 4mo
ReadingEnvy Oh I love real indigo! 1mo
Lindy @ReadingEnvy I gave some of my dyed handiwork away as Christmas gifts. 😊 1mo
ReadingEnvy @Lindy lovely...I've purchased a few tea towels around here dyed in indigo because of course that was one of the traditional plantation crops in SC 1mo

On to a new audiobook, still playing with natural dyes. #audiodyeing

kathedron Hope we get to see the "after" pic too! 4mo
Lindy @kathedron I will tag you. The new dye (made from motherwort leaves) isn‘t very impressive, so I‘m still experimenting. 4mo
Tanisha_A Ooh! Which colour? 4mo

I‘m #audiodyeing with a new #audiobook today. Elecampane flowers have yielded a lovely yellow colour. Some of these pieces I plan to overdye with indigo later, to get a green colour.

Crazeedi You do beautiful work, and I live that you're using wildflowers for dying! 4mo
Lindy @Crazeedi Thanks. ☺️ My garden offers lots of possibilities for dye colour, now that I am looking at it in a new way. 4mo
Ms.Story Wow! I'd love to try this with my wee ones! 4mo

Christine Love that color! 💛 4mo
Lindy @Christine I used a 1:1 ratio of elecampane flower petals to weight of fabric to get this intense colour. The fabric was first scoured, then treated with tannin, then an alum mordant. 4mo
Ms.Story @Lindy thanks for the recommendation!! 4mo
Lindy @Ms.Story 😇 4mo
Christine Wow! Quite the process, and such beautiful results. 4mo
Tanisha_A Sooooo beautiful. Love this shade of yellow. And I am much more excited about Indigo, that's one of my favourite colours/prints. 4mo
Lindy @Tanisha_A The dyeing adventure continues … 😊 4mo
Lindy @Christine Thanks! 4mo

ReadingEnvy Did you see this book was longlisted for the USA national book award for ya? 4mo
Cathythoughts To make yellow dye!! 😮 wow 4mo
Lindy @ReadingEnvy No, I didn‘t. It‘s worthy. I‘m still digesting its impact. 4mo
Lindy @Cathythoughts I will tag you when I post a photo of the results. Initial test looks promising for a nice colour. 😊 4mo
Tanisha_A Waitinggg to see it come out. ☺️ 4mo

Funny book! Really relaxing to listen to as an #audiobook.

I did some #audiodyeing, followed by #audiocleaning - I tried to not make a mess. The fabric is supposed to be just where it is right now, to keep the sun out in the morning.

#BFC @wanderinglynn - dip-dyeing and cleaning made up 2k steps. Not bad. 😉

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 And cool dyeing! 7mo
Crazeedi Nice job, I did dying years ago when I was first married, its fun 7mo
RachelO Nice! 7mo
