This grows along fence lines everywhere and is so fragrant!
I spent part of Mother’s Day dyeing more fabric. The strips and squares are scraps of Kona white and are not PFD.
The only piece of PFD fabric I had left is in the center of the photo below and was laid flat on a piece of plastic to dye. The other fabrics are either Kona white or a good quality bleached muslin from my stash. This was just playing around to see how the colors blended and how to scrunch and fold for different results.
All of these colors came from various combinations of Dharma’s fuchsia, turquoise and lemon yellow Procion dyes.
I should receive an order this week with some additional fabric and dye to try a few more techniques. This is becoming an addiction!
WARNING!! If you’re squeamish about insects you can skip the rest of this post!
It’s hatching time for the 13 year cicadas here in the south. They’re creepy things and the exoskeletons are everywhere. As I was taking pictures of the honeysuckle I noticed their ‘remains’ on the leaves. These shells are empty.
This is the critter that comes out of shell.
They’re ugly things! Click for a closer look if you really want to. I like bugs just slightly more than I like reptiles and rodents. I’m not really scared of any of them, but I’d rather keep my distance.
I feel bad to leave you with that image, so here’s something prettier!
