A Peek Inside My Studio

For Xmas my husband bought me India Flint's book on Eco Dyeing, so I have been very busy collecting various plants to make natural dyes with.  I'm letting all these blossoms, stems and barks dry out then in they go to my freezer to await summer break when I will begin my experiments.  I'm so excited to get started.  Everywhere I look there are plants to collect for their dye properties.  I'm constantly on the lookout, and my freezer is filling quickly.
Many of the plants I've collected are from my little garden patio, but Jim and I went on a scavenger hunt around our neighborhood over Xmas break to get many of the ones you see on these two trays.
