a link rich post


or too hot to work.
it's cooler up north and Leena is trying a fermentation vat. vicarious dyeing over here :)- perhaps i should say dying-note the spelling
i have been spending time inside ie at the computer which has resulted in a few interesting finds.

for starters here's an attractive blog full of all kinds of crafty tips, podcasts and insights on whats going on and around.
ever thought about pleating fabric,without spending big time on a pleater? burda™ has a tutorial on making a pleating board fast and easy.

on the fun and games department this has been around for a while, but it is a good resource for generating doodles which can in turn  be used as a springboard and taken further. you can use any ol'  fine tip pen and paper, i can assure you.

and last color and interactions-almost literal- here .fun and color ideas galore.

on closing,  a delightful article on cakes. don't be put off by the title, your baking will never be the same.

stay cool.

  1. Hi!
    Thanks for the comment on my blog! Yes, I often get apseudo-Japanese gibberish comments and I delete them almost right away! I allow anonymous comments on my blog....because my mother can't always remember how to sign in properly! It is hilarious because I set her up with the EASIEST user name and password ever.....but....she still can't remember. She's not even that old and she's most assuredly not suffering from alzheimer's....she just has issues with her computer! Anyway, thanks for the comment. Love your indigo dying but especially you resourcefulness at using the drips to color other fibers!

  2. Thanks neki for the link to my blog:) I don't know how my fermentation will end, so far it is good, but I go and check it every couple of hours, it is very exciting. The nights are now a little cooler than in the beginning of the week, so I hope it doesn't stop the fermenting. Somehow the vikings fermented woad over here thousand years ago, and without a greenhouse, so it should be possible even now:)
