Miss Havisham presents the lesson...

Sometimes....

It pays not to get too down about a project....

Because sometimes....

Things go wrong, then right, then wrong, then right...


Experiments change all the time, that's why they're experimental!

You just never know what could happen.


You can get lovely pale bluey browny pinky greeny purpley greyish colours out of one dye bath.


Not so bad after all. I just love the way they were different colours at each stage of the process, and this is the final result, thanks to a day in the sun.

The lovely ragged aristocrats in a post-apocalyptic dream, powdered and patchworked in their shredded Fagin finery. There will be bone beads and rhinestones and tiny crystal chips in this batch...and ivory glove buttons no bigger than a match head.

Admiration and interest were my first feelings when I’ve entered your blog. It is indeed the most remarkable creation I’ve ever seen! Moreover, your manner of writing and the photos are absolutely fine and I think everyone would agree with my words. All this made me immediately add the blog to my links. Thank you very much for such a marvelous web page and I will surely enter it again!
