Onion skins were collected during the many meals prepared last week. I packed them into a jar with alum mordanted fabric and plain water. I also collected many avocodo pits and skins. The jar is stewing on our bed room window at the cottage. We saved the stems from Loonsong beet greens, and I wrapped them in some cotton fabric after dampening them with vinegar. It feels like magic to experiment with what is considered kitchen waste.
However, the 'paying attention' of natural dyeing is making me very tired. It seems as if there is always one new thing after another to try. Even though these discoveries are not new, for me they are adventures and they seem to take all my energy.
