Like Mother, Like Daughter

I'm not the only hand-dyer in my family.. mum has been dying fabrics for many years, and has finally opened up her own etsy shop!

Most of these scarves have been dyed using natural dyes which are collected and extracted by hand, a process I remember watching when I was younger.

Check out Lindy's beautiful hand-dyed Shibori Silk scarves and shawls over on her shop, Kimi Silks.

In the Loop

Thanks to the wonderful people from the French webzine 'In the Loop", my free shawl pattern Wave is now available in FrenchI've been enjoying past issues of this webzine and was thrilled when Caroline contacted me asking for permission to translate and publish my pattern.

So, grab a coffee or tea, head on over to 'In the Loop' sit back, relax and enjoy this inspirational  webzine.  If your French is as good as mine, head on over to the google translate page, type in the web address ( and hey presto, a translated version will appear.
