fall

 the walnuts are beginning to drop from their branches and I manage to collect a few every morning; the skins have found a new home in the black bean dye pot; will the blue turn a darker shade or will it all become brown I wonder? green perhaps, that would be nice
will probably do some over-dyeing on the summer/spring dyed fabric scraps to bring them too into fall, not an over-all dye, just patches with the clamping technique I saw in Jude's class

Despite sending out a call for walnuts I've not managed to succeed in getting any. None in the grocers or supermarkets either. Glad you have a tree Saskia. None seem to be nearby, here in Wakefield. Ah well. Learn to live with it.

hi Jan, I don't have a walnut tree, but there are many nearby; therefore also many other gatherers who come to collect the fallen fruits......when it comes to walnuts, it's a dog-eat-dog world out there!

I've asked my local grocer if he can get any from the wholesalers; I'll find out later this week. X my fingers.
