some plums from the tree...and plum colours inside too. the stack of fabrics and the swatches on the right of my dye journal were dyed with salal berries. the colour varied quite a bit on the different fabrics (wool, silk gauze, silk satin & merino yarn), but all are nice plummy shades. exactly what i'm looking for in the fall. now what to make with them... details on the other sets of swatches are here. most fabrics i mordant with alum, some are thrown in on a whim, unmordanted.
i'm feeling quiet today.
