Sweetness everywhere. My favorite new shirts this summer are my mushroom print crop tops. Blending into the forest floor and celebrating the bounty! This shirt is printed with a tessellation of one of my photos of a Purple Fairy Club fungi 🌲 It is available in my etsy shop. https://www.etsy.com/shop/Newtribetextiles
In a week or so, I will also have some new naturally dyed scarves up for sale. This one will be indigo and indigo-marigold dyed 4-ply raw silk I dyed years ago. Woohoo to using up materials!!!
Here I have an armful of mostly raw silk, and a little merino, all ready to be wound into balls and woven.
Green is the color of life, spilling forth into each new day. Unbounded. 🌱
This is the end of this piece, it will be available for sale once it is finished.
I went to my favorite black walnut picking spot up in the mountains, and most of the trees were completely bare of any fruit! I couldn’t believe it! I did find two trees with still very green fruit, and also decided to give dyeing with the leaves a try since the fruit was so sparse. 🌳 The green black walnuts are creating the most wonderful greens I’ve ever gotten, and the leaves are producing a perfect grey. The wonder of natural dyeing never ceases to amaze, small changes process can create drastically different results.
Windows to the universe.
Eyes peeking open, taking in the first rays of the new rising sun. Blinking in disbelief that the colors seem to get more brilliant every day.
I just drew three names for Fall custom spots. 💚🌲💚 My gathering of shuttles await your ideas. https://jeannieortiz.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/img_9538.mov
