an exciting year ahead

As the year commences I will take you through the step by step construction of my textiles.  The details involved in designing my patterns. Dyeing my colours. The intricacies of setting up a loom. And of course, weaving!

And, I'm going to attempt to grow ALL of my dye plants. Wish me luck.  It's still frozen here in Canada, so give me time, once spring begins to bud... so will I!!

It is going to be an exciting year, be with me on this journey!

Here's a little picture to get you started, last years crop of the precious wildflower Queen Anne's Lace... which lends itself to a delicate yellow when used for dyeing.
