natural colors & textures

No, I still haven't dyed again, but I'm clearly on my way to use all the natural goodness I've already dyed in the past !

It took me some time to adjust to our new home, new habits, new everything. Many months ago I simply got out of the creative loop (or rather, I had fallen down the no-creativity void !), and it was hard to find any kind of inspiration or motivation back.

I've digged in my "archived" fabrics & fibers that I have dyed since 2009 (!!!) and I've already started using them for creating. So, yes, that's a pretty big deal for me, even though it doesn't mean any "new" dye from me just yet.

I have selected some fabrics & fibers all dyed with the same plant : Osyris alba. All were dyed back in 2013. (oy ! already four years ago !) The grey was obtained with a little iron. I love this warm warm pink. Such a comforting (fleshy, too, I think) color ! Enjoy the natural colors & textures !

this time of year

Happy March you all ! This year is running wild, I tell ya ! I'm not keeping up with it !

March 02nd, and today was a proof of the saying "out like a lamb, in like a lion" ! It's been windy & chilly this morning, then too warm at noon (19°C !) and lastly we had showers this afternoon ! Crazy March !

It's this time of year when you need to wear layers to peel off when it's getting warm, and to put on again when it's getting chillier ! Here enter the naturally dyed scarves ! They're lightweight but still warm enough for springtime !

They are perfect for ladies and for gentlemen of any age or style ! They are minimalist, dyed in such tiny batches that they're almost one of a kind, and timeless. They will never get out of style !

They are a great gift idea for a birthday, or for Mother's Day/Father's Day ... and as a treat for yourself as well of course ! You can see them all over { here } !

Raise your hand if you own a Cozy Memories naturally dyed scarf !

Thanks so much for your support, always !
