Mossy Banks

Calgary has FINALLY greened up completely: no brown highway verges, leaves budding and fuzzing, flowers just starting to pop. I’ve been craving these fresh colours, and whipped up some dye pots to accomplish that as well!
All in the shop now 🙂
Luxe threads for stitching along and on Mossy banks! A mix of wool, silk and silk/wool in clear crisp greens and yellows dyed in historically accurate processes with osage and logwood.
 

 

What could be better than an amble along the riverside, finding little secret coves and mossy banks to sit on and dream? As the wind sways miniature willow stands, you daydream, floating in the clearness.

This pack includes silk noil, cotton velveteen and silk/rayon velvet, solid and streaked and mottled, with osage and logwood dyed in historically accurate processes, giving elegant calming blues and soft Monet mossy yellows and greens. (Note, threads are not included, just to give you an idea of depth of colour. Threads will be in a different listing!)

  1. I have only worked with these greens, specifically, only once. I really enjoy looking at them but they are the furthest from my mind when I get to work. Do you have colours that you avoid ? And do you know why ?

    • I think the only colour i’m a bit leery of is yellow, though i don’t mind smidges of it. I don’t know why as i certainly enjoy sunshine, but it seems cold and aggressive to me!
      Brown used to bother me, but then i discovered how many warm shades of it that there are, all associated with comfort and food 🙂
