My favorite hand dyed scarves

So many factors of the dyeing process contribute to making each scarf unique: fibre content, dye colours, amount of snow used, amount of dye used and folding techniques.

Every time I hand dye, I am surprised and happy with the results.

Hand made fabric greeting cards

I have created a series of blank greeting cards using some of my hand dyed fabrics, and embellishments collected over the years.

The note cards are a fun way to use some of my precious fabric pieces that are too small to stitch with (although some of my friends would not agree!)

Shells were collected from beach vacations. I purposely chose only shells that had a small hole, with the idea that I would stitch them onto some artwork in the future.

I love the beautiful and nuanced look of Oakshott Cottons. The warp and weft are woven with two different colours, you can see the turquoise and blue in the piece above. So much more interesting than just a solid!
