so enough with the black already




yep, those of you who have visited these pages before
may like to reach for the sunglasses
i have decided to abandon the funereal black
and whitewash the walls a bit

the images above are of eucalyptus ecoprint
on delicious silk velvet
the objects have felt-induced wrinkles

  5. Nary a wrinkle in the new blog look, India! It is a metamorphosis of the utmost delight - good, yes, very good whitewashing I'd say...

    I wish my own wrinkles looked as delicious as your felt-induced ones :>]]

  9. Thanks so much for changing the background. I've been reading for a while and the black was pretty hard on the eyes.

    As I'm a new commenter: Your work is awesome and I love your book even though I'm not a dyer, well not since I was young anyways. I gave up dye-ing because of the chemicals. I make other things with plants now but recognise much in your work.


    blessings,

  11. Yes, I agree that this color is easier on the aging eyes. I've been having trouble with subtitles lately too!
    I do enjoy your blog, whatever color it may be!

  22. I liked the black, but I love change too!
    I've been wearing black clothes for a long time, and two months ago I had got enough of it all of a sudden.
    I love your red ecoprint very much!
