Winkelen

Posted on

  Wow. Just WOW! I am so thrilled to have been interviewed for new online magazine Winkelen¬†for their second issue, out today. I’ve never really seen an online magazine before (does that make me old? un-tech saavy?) but when Winkelen got in touch I was really blown away with how great it looked, the articles […]

Catch Up

Posted on

I’ve been a very quiet blogger so far this year. I find it hard to blog consistently because I always have so much to do, and not all of it is very interesting! I post much more on instagram, a picture speaks a thousands words, yada yada…

A new (old) chair

Posted on

  About 6.5 years ago, I spotted this old chair in a vintage shop in Brunswick that is now a cafe. I decided I HAD to have it and I was going to recover it. Coz let’s face it, it started out it’s life with me as pretty damn ugly. I meant to finally recover […]

New Year, New Vat

Posted on

9 days in to the new year I finally get around to starting a new vat. For quite some time I’ve been wanting to try my hand at a truly natural vat, so today I started a fructose lime vat. Often also called a 1-2-3 vat, which is confusing because a ferrous sulphate (iron) vat […]

More new stuff

Posted on

poor neglected blog! I’m sorry, I’ll try to do better next year. I’ve worked on some new stuff recently which I haven’t shown off yet blog wise! I’ve done a short run of Linen cushion covers which you can grab in the shop, and I also made some one of a kind patchwork scarves using […]

In addition to being stocked at such a lovely shop, we also got […]

Perfection

Posted on

I know I’ve been quiet on the blog front for the past month or so, but a LOT has been happening on the personal front so I’ve not had much good dye stuff to talk about. I have worked on a few projects, I’ve worked up a new design which has become a fast favourite, […]

Gemma Patford Co-lab

Posted on

For months now I’ve been dyeing (geddit??) to get my hands on some of Gemma Patford’s rope baskets. From the first moment I saw them I’ve been wanting to turn them blue, and finally she said “yes!” I’m quite sure I emitted a very girly squeal of joy when she did.¬†I’m a bit of a […]

Indigofera Australis

Posted on

I was able to make a quick visit to Ceres yesterday thanks to a trip to the doctor (shoulder problem!) which is nearby and was delighted to find they had a few Australian Indigo plants in their nursery. I picked up the 3 strongest looking plants and have chosen a place in my front yard […]
