nice markings from acorns...

I had forgotten that I left some cloth pieces in the acorn bath. It's been about 2 weeks and I like what happened to them. One of the silk pieces has some nice markings. I believe it's from the broken up acorns  where the innards touched the cloth. Will try a bundle next time to see if I can get markings on more of  the cloth. Click on the image for close-ups.

more feathers received in the mail...
I had ordered some hand spun mohair with lace bits from Drucilla and she was so kind to send me two beautiful feathers from her flock.

Oh my...really beautiful feather gift, and the layout of the photo too. Geese?
About dye with nut baths-When I go to MA. I will try some...do you need a setting factor? And, by the way, I once made halved walnut heart shaped marks on a page in my sketch book. I could do it on purpose with cloth (they are heart shaped.

Oh, and all this feather furry has unearthed a little 'miracle' I'd completely forgotten about. But, I'll post it on Feather Friday, and send you a foretaste by email.

Deanna, those pieces are beautiful. What a nice surprise you made for yourself by forgetting about them for a few weeks! Love that. The yarn looks luscious -- guess feathers are in the air (smiling)!

i'm so glad you were pleased with the package deanna... you photographed it so beautifully. Ms. ∆×∆p×≥h/4π, the black&white feather is from a turkey, and the long one is a rooster tail feather.

the acorns made such interesting marks - it reminds me of papyrus. i'll have to try an acorn bath one day soon.
