The day started well as I unwrapped my dyeing parcels. It is always exciting to see the resulting colours. I had used a lot of red gum leaves, saw dust and bark so it seems appropriate to hang them in a red gum to dry.
We unearthed the paper we had buried..rather disappointing so far. However I worked with both sheets, one of which was torn into 4 pieces so I am pleased that I could use them to some advantage.
The weather has clouded over and we expect rain. Another great day.
