Because we eat a lot of avocados. And I had a bit of old silk. And it was a nice day. I really like the color as it came out of the jar. What if I just repeat this over and over on the same cloth? Why not? I don't really need to dye cloth. I have enough. But we always have a lot of pits and I am just curious. What if I overdye the walnut cloth? I have a lot of that from over the years. But then, the squirrels here really like the pits. They like the walnuts too actually.
The madder has been in the ground for more than 3 years. I can see red near ground level. It is quite complicated (for me anyway) to get red. I do not much like pink. I am not much into the dyeing thing on any serious level that involves mordanting etc. And honestly, The plant is , well, I am not liking it much. Kinda floppy, sticky and wandering too much for the garden. I will dig up what is here and do what I can. Maybe bundling. Or maybe just compost it. Or transplant it and let it just live another life. I would rather grow food. For me or bees or whatever is hungry.
I have been dreaming a lot and
in my dream garden, I simply grow new eyes.
