I was going to change the duvet over from the heavier winter one to a lighter summer one but it is still too chilly. Haven't yet reached the stage where we are waking up hot so there is no point changing it at present.
The heating is on and off like a yoyo. The temperature at the moment is still 8C, the poor tomatoes and French beans are still in the greenhouse as it is just too cold, wet and windy for them:(
Forgot to show you yesterday some parchment paper that I laid sheets of dyed paper on which were waiting to be baked:
Such gorgeous marks. They will come in handy for paper/sewing items. I am starting to save my onion skins, plus avocado skin and pips ready for more dyeing. Watching online, people also dye outside, for health and safety reasons, using vinegar, alum, iron, tannin etc in their water. They also use food colouring, paint and lay plants between sheets of paper before soaking. All look interesting and I am very excited to try some of the techniques.
It's like being back at University on my art course! Which reminds me, I have kept all those journals so might check through them to see if anything useful is in them or where I noted down techniques I used for work.
