Imagine my surprise on finding a letter from Threadcrumbs in my mailbox yesterday, and then upon opening it finding yet another much smaller blue one within; wondering what it might contain, I excitedly tore it open to discover these soft treasures: 9 Silk Summer Flowers from Jude! I smiled a huge smile; I felt sooooooo happy and grateful.
I am now wondering, fretting even, about how I might use them, feeling a slight trepidation: not wanting to waste them by not using them and not wanting to ruin them by using them the wrong way. 'Oh, don't be a pussy, Saskia', Frog murmurs, 'What can go wrong?'
He's so right of course, albeit not very subtle.
Feels like things are converging for the better. How serendipitous: the plant below finally blossoming after many years in this pot and me having taken a photograph just a couple of days ago, buying a new one last Thursday and the stamp on Jude's envelope: all the same plant, Echeveria.
How I have been dyeing with colours these days, realising how much I need colour to brighten up my life.

|after dyeing and rinsing: the commercial dye-remnant turned out a lot paler than I had previously imagined, I do like it though|
|I love the Turneresque landscapes|
|I also like how the natural dye results still manage to shine through in places|
|all in all a success|
