Last night was my Herb Society meeting, every month different members serve snacks at the end of the meeting. We always have a wonderful table centerpiece and snacks. The meeting tonight was on learning how to have your own compost. It was very interesting, and I hope to get one started as soon as the snow leaves. This center piece incorporates a compost sifter (the wood and screen piece) with lots of other gardening tools, seeds, and herb plants. There are also candles in little flower pots. It was so nice to see "summer", I'm getting so tired of snow, which is heading this way again tonight.
This is the final results of my fabrics dyed with lichen, it was a fun plant to use. The left one was the first fabric dyed and then the others followed with a about a week in between with the dye plant soaking. I simmered the dye and fabric about 1 hour each time. Now, I have a sample of each fabric setting in a south window going on the second week testing how light sensitive the dye is, so far its doing good.
