It's been awhile since I updated my blog, but the dyeing and stitching is still going on. I got into the habit of photographing so my photos are handy whenever I have time to blog.
At the end of June I was away to look after my GS for a week. It was a nice change from my normal work routine. While I was away I did quite a bit of eco-dyeing and a bit of stitching as well. I started working on a journal cover for my trip to Hokkaido later this year. I completed the journal cover and I was told I should keep it as a decorative cloth instead of making it into journal cover!

I have a few more stitching projects in the works. I've finished quilting one and I am just waiting for binding. Hopefully I can show it to you in my next blog update. I must say I'm enjoying my dyeing and stitching right now.
We are just about more than halfway into our winter. Apart from being cold, it has been raining a lot too. When I was away in Canberra I felt that our Melbourne winter is very mild in comparison to Canberra. I actually felt hot the night after my return. I do like cooler weather more than warmer weather!
Until next time
