I guess my acorns will have a bit of metal influence, like it or not! How did that get in there? Anyway, these are just soaking so they are easier to crush. Pictures of my recent experiments coming soon.
Notions-Drye Goods Studio Diary
Saturday, December 27, 2014
I had all kinds of plans today, the rummage sale at Spokane Art Supply, getting some work done at the Potters Guild, maybe visiting with friends. Oh well, a bit of snow is as good an excuse to putter around the house and studio as any. Miss Not-a-Bird and I will be doing just that. She apparently has no interest in post holiday dieting, so I guess the first thing to do is fill up the feeder.

I dried a bunch of woad and indigo leaves last fall. I wanted to see what would happen if I tried to ferment powdered leaves instead of buying the actual powdered dye stuff. So far the liquid is turning the right color, and they both have a smell, so we will see what it looks like tomorrow!

On this morning's walk I found this little nest resting in a branch over the Spokane River. It does remind me that I should also probably think about cleaning and reorganizing my own little nest. After a year of eco printing, my studio does resemble a pile of sticks!
