Eco printing: Eucalyptus

 I've wanted to try eco printing with eucalyptus for some time now.  After a wonderful podcast on FiberTalk, I decided to seek out eucalyptus.  It doesn't grow here, but a trip to the florist department at HyVee found a bunch.  I thought it was rather expensive, 11.00 for a small bundle.  I am happy with my results and will continue looking for more.  I would like larger leaves so that I can also do some stitching on the leaves.

I made 2 small bundles.  This one was by far the best.  They were steamed for 2 hours and left in the steamer all afternoon, until I had time to unwrap.  More experimenting tomorrow...
