my first blog

So here I am, blogging. And already worrying about what to put.

My current project is inspired by the amazing sunflowers I grew in my garden this year. I have a million beautiful seeds and I have been constructing related textile pieces on the loom and the knitting machine.
This has involved dyeing yarns with plants that I have in my garden. I loved the mysterious process as recipes are not precise and results much more unpredictable than when you are using chemical dyes.
