Last summer I collected leaves from Birch and dried them.
Now I have dyed some wool using these leaves.
(The fabric in this DJ block was dyed with Procion MX
the leaves are underneath)
The yearn prepared
Here you can see the wool waiting and the Birch dye.
In the pot on the stove slowly heated up to 90°C
Slowly cooled down.
Washed and dried
And ready for knitting.
My seventh CWB block in progress.
I have not yet started my DJ again, after all this traveling back and forth, south and north,
but will do that soon.
The European Dear Jane club is preparing a DJ Quilt Expo in Brussels May 2013.
Now isn't that just groovy?
I plan to have mine finished by then.
