Dyeing to make more journals

Seems like grey autumn days are upon us, loving the cooler weather and changing colours of the leaves. I must make some time to go out and enjoy while it last..

This is the only journal I made this week. I have been slow in making new ones lately. It will be listed soon, waiting for the sun to come out for better lighting to take photos.

I have been dyeing fabric to make into new journal covers, I am pleased with the results of the new shibori patterns that I am experimenting, this is one of them. I like the simplicity and zen feel to this one. New journals with new patterns coming to the shop soon and I am very excited.

Meanwhile, in the garden...

The explosion of yellow! The Ajania pacifica (silver and gold) finally bloomed, what a beauty!

A close up of the tiny yellow flowers. It is lovely and brings some much needed colour.

This is another one, Ajania pacifica (pink ice). The petals are still opening.

Well, gumboots on and weeding time again this weekend, if weather permits.

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Those flowers look pretty. We're waiting on warmer weather here as it's been much too cold the past week or so.
    Thanks, and you too. Flighty xx
