It came to my notice that a niece who was shortly to visit us also has a birthday approaching. I put on the dye pot.
I went out to visit a favourite tree.
I had ordered the scarves with this kind of occurrence in mind, so I pulled one out and pulled out the new silk thread as well.
In they went (and so did the stems that were left from the leaves I’d used)!
The transformation is always amazing in the dye pot.
But the contents are even better fun!

And here hung out to dry.
Yes, she does like it….! And we took her out on a walk to see the tree that contributed its glory to her gift.
