dyeing in the heat

this weekend we have had a real foretaste of summer - 34 degrees yesterday and today and it will dip down slightly on wednesday to 27 before going back to the 30s for another week. i am emphatically not a hot weather person and get peevish and red cheeked in the heat. - not helped by billthedog breathing loving hot breath on my feet.....

but it was excellent weather to dye wool blanketing and silk so the fig tree was festooned in what will become a desert night quilt.

I've always loved reading about the Aussie summers when its freezing cold here in the U.S. I have not an ounce of love for the winter!

found the link here from Stitchin' Fingers and I dig the textures in your work.
