~ Dyeing ~

.... dyed some Osnaburg last night ~

I dislike the name osnaburg, ~ so I nicknamed it cupboard cloth.

just love to stitch on this...
embroider or cross
~ it reminds me of old-fashioned seed cotton cloth. 

not sure what I'll stitch, 
~ but the reproduction calico and threads will be a part
in my work....

almost forgot ~
I dye my cloth with dye I make 
from our black walnuts harvested in the autumn.
Blessings from the Farm
