What Was I Thinking???

Wish I could go back in time and eliminate the turmeric, but since that's not possible, I will be doing a lot of overdyeing. I just sprinkled some of the turmeric but it does take over. In fact, when I unrolled the bundles, some of the turmeric was still in powder form and had to be brushed off of the fabric. I love the lines formed from the twill tape I used to bind the bundles. Colors in the photos are a little off but close.
All the beet slivers used washed away. The leaf prints are chinese tallow. Caramel coloring is from the oak leaves.

Turmeric did spread. I think I will stay away from turmeric! The purple looks great though. Hugs Nat
