At this time of the year the Welsh Sheep are happily waiting to get shorn
 to relieve them of their beautiful fleece in this summer heat

:::
in the meantime many a thistle catches some fleece on the grazing hills 

so off we went to gather some loose fleece

meanwhile these eco dye bundles 
  where cooling off for a day after having steamed away nicely 
A lot of people are after perfect leaf prints when doing these kind of bundles and only certain types of leaves like eucalyptus ( discovered so I am told by India Flint) , Wild strawberry and geranium leaves 
but I prefer markings that are more of an abstract nature especially when combined with Rust elements from my found iron

 to have some " personal gentleman carriers " at hand when one happens to pass the most gorgeous decaying rust pile 
to help carry the rusty load ;-)

so as we say farewell to Wales for a little while
I leave behind some Solar Dye brews to reveal their magic when I make my way back

and indoors various fermentations are patiently stacked 
until I get back ..
filled with flowers, bark, plant matter, wool, fleece, 
undyed embroidery floss & cotton cloth

and as we arrive back in the South of London
the Natural Dyeing Journey continues
as I am glad for having access to a garden again 
and space to light a wood fire 
and stack my brews 
after rich pickings form the summer growth
