Last week there was some leaf printing. Eucalyptus Scoparia leaves, one of my favourites.
Pecan leaves, inspired by Lotta Helleberg (when I went to her blog to insert this link there was an especially delectable pecan leaf printed fabric on show, by complete coincidence) and by a wonderful lunch with friends who have a pecan tree. The leaves have been patiently waiting in my freezer.
Let me admit right here and now that I had some alum and tannin mordanted fabric which took no colour at all–I must have made some kind of mistake there!
As always, the thrill of seeing good things begin to emerge.
Then waiting to unwrap bundles. I saved these until I had a friend over for dinner who I realised would enjoy the reveal as much as I do.
Some pecan prints were better than others, but the good ones are lovely.
And the Eucalyptus leaf prints were all I hoped for and more.
