Harvest time is busy time, as everything seems to ripen pretty much at the same time. This includes harvesting plants to make natural textile dyes. I have only recently gotten into natural dying and I decided to take a moment away from the veggies and fruits to harvest my Queen Anne’s Lace. Taking it from garden to pot, I dyed some beautiful wool; I also tried an experiment with the leftover foliage and left it hanging to dry the skeletons and see what happens. I have a vision in mind but only time will tell if it’s doable. In the meantime, I must say I am happy with the tint I created with the vat of natural dye. My hope was to create my own version of mossy-coloured hair for a future art doll – this one will more likely have a crown of sunshiny locks! Now I must go back to the garden to harvest and preserve the veggies and fruits that will see us through the winter. What a glorious abundance!
