On my last post I was looking forward to the first indigo vat of the season. Ha, ha! Of course, this is the English summer at it's best. Hot and humid; cold and windy; biblical rain, and that's just the weather. Meanwhile in the garden everything is growing apace, with attendant snails and slugs. But you can have fun with snails. Try a snail race up a fence!
There is, of course, plenty of day time television, The World Cup and Royal Ascot for example. I might just alight on a comfy chair to share coffee and biscuits with my man. Not good for conversation if exciting things are happening on the pitch!
One of my favorite scrap quilts lays across the arm of my chair.
I gathered recycled white cotton and varous scraps ready for last week's indigo vat (which didn't happen.)
Another rummage unearthed dyed fabrics that need 'further attention'.
Yesterday I met up with my friends at Walford Mill. The bags of bits came with me, along with
my wax pot andvarious mark making tools.
White fabric ready for dyeing then over dyeing. The blue and green needs some mark making before over dyeing
I was having such fun I sort of forgot that the wax would still be in liquid form when I drove home - solution below.
A job for this afternoon as it is still raining. a job for this afternoon I think.
