Well, a friend of mine called last night while I was enjoying my nice glass of wine after my dinner and handed me this big bag of crocus petals! An unusual gift you say! These are waste product after the saffron harvest and she thought I might be able to dye with them. What an amazing gift 🙂 I don’t know if I can dye with them, but I’ll give it a go.
For a start I have to preserve some, here are some in the freezer….. ….and here are some spread out in the green house. Even though it’s not sunny, I’m hoping they will dry. I’m currently heating some on the cooker to see if any colour comes out.In all this , I have two weeks to produce an array of beautiful textiles for my guests to see on my launch day Oct. 25! Thanks Mary for the petals 🙂
