more cloth and dye

The cloth is growing slowly,partially because it,s almost too hot to stitch and partially because i'm still looking for a charity shop to plunder for used fabrics-seem to be in short supply in Sydney.In the meantime,i'm dyeing using the tried and tested India Flint method of bundling,see above.The samples were both created using local leaves and rust liquid from rusty nails found in my future son in laws ancestral garage.The purple came from a bush in the park which no one can identify which isn't very useful and i intend to add felt to the fabric when the heat calms down a bit.Then the whole can be added to my cloth when i return.Off to celebrate the end of the first decade now!
