And this week it's dyeing

Have been having such a good time playing with Myfanwy Hart's dyeing technique. It actually works. Have a look ...

Camera doesn't do justice to the colours. I've overdyed some samples to get the colour I wanted - in effect using the old watercolour painting technique of putting a coloured "wash" over the whole thing to lift it.

Dyeing is the sort of thing I like to do when I can't settle to anything else. Delia Smith roasts a chicken - I get out the rubber gloves!
