natural dyes / elderberry

I found a few elderberries growing behind the chicken house.  I think the raccoons have been feasting and there were not many left.

Simmering... The smell filled the house.  Very sweet..

The colour on the fabric is so subtle. But, I like it.  Not everything has to be, in your face bright and bold.  I imagine if I had used more berries and less cloth, it would look very different.  Next year...


  1. Very cool. What about mulberries?

    1. Will have to wait until next year... I am keeping my eye on some pokeweed berries!
