I've also been inspired by lines like Lina Rennell, to take dying to another level- and to try to create my own prints and designs. While I can't sew to save my life, I am thinking of adding my own print designs to an alternative apparel tunic top or dress.
If I am happy with the results, I may try making some items to sell on etsy. I have been spending some time dreaming up print designs of my own.
Whenever I try something I go about it in a manner that can be described as being 'hardcore'.
At the farmer's market yesterday- I barraged the herbal plants salesman with many questions about his dye plants. I am interested in getting the dye chamomile and indigo, but as they won't have that until next week. I'll have to wait a bit. So, yes I will be making my own dye from plant leaves. And, yes I will probably create a huge mess in the kitchen while doing so! But I am excited - and I will share about the process.
About the pancakes. This morning I made some silver-dollar sized berry pancakes. Gluten Free, Vegan Berry Pancakes (I promise you I am not a hippie) that were pretty tasty. Maybe I made too many! I got the Recipe from the Vegan Yum Yum cookbook, and I just substituted the flour for Bob's All purpose gluten-free flour.
Mario's mother is coming to visit, so I'll be pretty busy today. Why oh why are weekends so short?
