The last indigo workshop took place on Friday. It was cool in the morning though by the afternoon there was warmth from the sun, enough to produce beautiful blue cloth.

So apart from enjoying myself I have produced a book on Indigo and Shibori. I was so excited I managed to delete my website. Thanks to Joh at Weebly Help Centre, and a great deal of searching, he found it and here we are!
still coming to terms with the new computer and having to use a

Oh, I think I need a cup of tea and a sit down in a comfy chair!
