Another Gift in the Mail

This absolutely gorgeous gift arrived yesterday from my dear friend (of 40 years), Jo, who dyed this amazing silk scarf using found plant dyes she has gathered herself (I'm yet to discover what!).
The dark charchoal flower and leaf design has been dyed over a background of a soft mushroom shade.
Jo exhibits her work at a gallery in Nelson, New Zealand, where she lives.
Her label is "Water Marks" - eco dyeing. Jo was also instrumental in bringing India Flint from Australia to Nelson to run eco dyeing workshops. India's Blog is www.not all those who wander are
Your beautiful work is so appreciated Jo and I will think of you when I am wearing it.
