All the time I've been natural dyeing wool I've been also dyeing silk scarves (silk pongee, 45 x 180 cm).
Tri leta sem jih samo barvala in spravljala v košaro, jih občasno občudovala and razkazovala še drugim. Letos sem jim končno dala prišiti kratke ježke, na strop so mi montirali tirnico s trakom ježka in zdaj krasijo mojo predsobo - trije metri krasnih barv svile!
S fotografiranjem sem se zelo trudila sama, nato pa še drugi zet Tomaž, ampak v predsobi ni skoraj nič naravne svetlobe in tole je najboljše, kar sva lahko naredila.
For three years I've been only dyeing and putting them in a basket, admiring them and showing them to visitors from time to time. This year I finally had short velcro bands sewn to them, a curtain rail with a velcro band mounted on the ceiling and now they make a lovely decoration in my hall - three meters of splendid silk colours!
I made every effort to take usefull pictures myself, then my second son-in-law Tomaž helped me, but since there is practically no natural light in the hall these pictures are the best we could make.
