Imagine the blossoms slightly pink and you can understand my delight.
In another garden - in Switzerland - a greenhouse is being constructed
Embroidery school is over but I am still "sitting in the class room"
making borders - I used a stitch from queeniepatch - the Q-stitch
the one in blue. - here is the link: http://queeniepatch.blogspot.fr/search/label/Q%20Stitch
And below in white with red beads - a stitch from Paperjennifer - she has an Instagram tutorial
It is a buttonhole and at the same time scallopping stitch.
I dyed with dandelions. I followed Jude Hill from her blog spiritcloth.
If you want to know more about it here is the link:
A very nice soft yellow
I went into the frontgarden and picked a potful of dandelion flowers.
And then I did what I read on spiritcloth - I cooked the flowers with water
and put my fabric scrap and a little white thread into it. Jude put some allum
too. I have no experience with this and might try it some day - to see
if there is a difference.
Two days in a jar and out came this little yellow delight -
