Baby Steps

As a first tiny little step towards making crafting part of my life again, I decided to do a little bit of avocado dyeing again. I had tried it once before, a long time ago, and the results were, errmm, not all that brilliant. But having made guacamole, I had skins and stones and didn't want to just throw them away ( no composting here, unlike at the cottage in France where we compost everything ). And this time, I was quite pleased with the result. It wasn't an earthshatteringly fabulous deep pink colour like some I have seen, but the cotton laces and the cotton/linen mix fabric turned a rather lovely blush pink. In the photographs, I have put a proper beige trim and the white laces/fabric next to the dyed ones to show that the colour really is blush pink. Yay! 

Until the next time, toodlepip xxx

Yay, great to see you again, Liz! Happy New Year! I wish you a very creative 2019 ;) The soft earthy pinks of your avocado dye, they're so beautiful. Unfortunately I'm highly allergic to avocado, so I will never be able to try this one. Bummer. Sending you hugs and love xx
