It,s been hot today so only worked in bursts,but I've cold mordanted some fibre-i say cold but the temp of the water has been far from cold because of the heat outside.Also dyed some fibre with a bucket of fermenting Buckthorn bark-also outside, then modified it with wood ash to get a lovely pink.Finished a little book made fro banana paper i made earlier and printed a series of bird cards-maybe for Christmas because i shall be in Aus for that and not able to do anything much in the way of printing etc.All in all,a productive day!
The banana book cover,with cow parsley and more handmade paper.This book is very small but was a pleasure to make.
