10 Feb Busy times at Clasheen
Apologies for the lack of posting here and to Facebook recently, since arriving home from Showcase I’ve had a lot of paperwork and eco printing to do, bringing home the dreaded flu bug definitely didn’t help. Tomorrow I’ve a product photo shoot so I’m sure many of you can imagine the tidying and prepping I needed to get through today, tidiness is not one of my strengths!!! Anyway, here’re a couple of pictures of a little silk twin set that I included in the printing pot the other day, I’ve happy memories of finding it on a thrifting expedition in Sacramento with Sharon from The Tin Thimble last spring!
Silk twinset eco printed with onion skins
I included some dried rose hips in the bundle there’s absolutely no sign of them in the printed cardigan, the stronger pinkish blush comes from overlapping brown onion skins predominately although there were a few red skins in the mix too.
Close up of the lace, it took. The colour differently because it is not made from pure silk
This week I hope to have my wood gasifier delivered. I can’t wait to have a brand new central heating system installed that will actually run the underfloor heating, the cost of oil is soooooo huge here in Ireland that it’s totally impossible for me to run the old boiler efficiently and heat the house. Next week I’ve two guests staying for a tailor made intensive felting and eco printing workshop, let’s hope that the heating is working before they arrive and we can have a fun time felting and printing in comfort!
