More Eco-Dyeing with Leaves

I'm still working at it.  I gathered some leaves this afternoon.  I bundled them up in white silk scarves and now they are cooling down in the dye pot.  I used red cabbage as the dye.  Time will tell.  I have to wait until tomorrow when I unwind, rinse, dry and take a look.  It will be washed in gentle detergent and hung to dry.  Then comes the iron.  Keeping fingers crossed.

The fall in New England is just so beautiful!  We've had some great sunny days to enjoy the fantastic fall foliage. I took a trip to the White Mountains National Park with a fellow friend/photographer.  We had a great time.  So many stops along the way to catch another great shot, one after the other!  We also took a 10 minute walk up a hill to view a lovely waterfall.  It was a perfect day for photos.  Here are a few of my shots from the day. Enjoy!

I've also been having fun doing some "Eco-Dyeing".  Please see my previous post.  I've been out gathering more leaves and flowers for more dyeing projects and I'll be back to share photos soon.
