i'm doing black bean dyeing today so hope i can show you some results next time. the beans soaked for 24 hours and the liquid has been drained off. i'm getting ready to mordant the fabric with alum and cream of tartar and then into the dye bath.
the temperature has started to cool down so the days are much more comfortable. hope you are all having a great weekend.
