It was my birthday yesterday, and it turned out to be a day full of special things. It also turned out to be a long busy day and this morning I'm tired and need to be ready to head out the door in fifteen minutes or so. Just enough time to take a pic of these "blue" roses which are adorning my kitchen bench.Another day workshop at the Guild today. This time it's natural dyeing--I'm keen to learn. I don't expect the bright vibrant colours that we've been getting from the synthetic dyes, but that's ok. The depth of colour and the excitement of making colour from scratch should be enough to keep me interested and happy.
