"seasons of love" (this is what's on the radio now!)

...and it seems like the perfect title!

My friend Carola is a textile restorer - and this is the amazing place where she works!
Lately she's been working to prepare bespoke dummies for antique dresses to be displayed in exhibitions and museums.
Every corner is full of little surprises - as soon as you get in, you can tell how much she loves her job
I love going there, it's like a small kingdom of textile magic!

Getting ready to warp the loom again - but before I had some dyeing to do
Walnuts are amazing - they give a wonderful rich brown -
and you don't need to mordant the yarn before dyeing it!



I discovered Jutta's lovely blog - her photos are absolutely beautiful!

home sweet home

our summer is getting to an end - but I still taste the yummy strauben we enjoyed after a mountain walk,
and the lovely colours of Val di Non.

Time to go back and start weaving again!
