No show

I had thought I would be able to show you some of my first dyeing attempts today, but unfortunately I can't show anything, as I still haven't got any dyes! I ordered some online on September 1st, but at the wrong place... Twelve days later I still haven't received anything. (the order is now cancelled and I have reordered at another, more trustworthy place)

I am very disappointed (to put it very very mildly), because today the second lesson of my dyeing course is online and I still can't do anything :-(.

To end on a happier note, I did receive some more silk scarves (from another online store, obviously) and hope to do some more fabric painting tomorrow.

And because a posting without pictures is boring, here are some photos I took in the last few weeks, in New Farm Park and the Mount Coot-tha Botanical Gardens. Nature can be so inspiring!

Bummer about the dyes. I am in the same position, I had ordered dyes in july to use during the summer, but still nothing. I know circumstances for the shopowner have been really hard and I do understandm, but summer is over, so she might as well wait sending them now untill next summer.

Like your pictures, especially the top one (tree).

What a fun blog you have! I can't wait to see what you are trying next!

Surely the botanical pics you posted will turn into nice Trading Cards?
