Maple leaf dyeing results

After setting a week (in a plastic bag with a pail of water on top) I washed out my wool. This fabric will be the top third of my Family Tree quilt.

The detail is amazing, some leave prints look like the leave is still there.

This wool will be the ground around the tree trunk.

This is the raw silk that was wrapped up with maple leaves and rusty metal. They would make some great scarves.

Don't forget if you have any pumpkins left that you don't carve, put them away in a cold place all winter (not freezing). Next Spring bring them out, cut off the top, fill with good soil, water and place in your garden for the Summer. Hopefully, the seeds inside will grow and you will get pumpkins next Fall.

Happy Halloween!

Wonderful! That leaf turned back is amazing. People are going to try to unfold it!

Love your pumpkin idea, I may have to buy another one just to try it out -- I didn't grow any this year.

Happy Halloween, Kathy. xo
