This linen which was white when I started, was soaked in soda ash over night, wrung out and then layered with viburnum leaves and wrapped with hemp super tight around a copper pipe. I steamed it in an aluminum pot outside for four hours or so.
After it cooled, I unwrapped it, rinsed it by hand, ironed it and and just smiled. Beautiful!!!
It's raining today - but I don't care. I'm grabbing my hiking books, putting on my raincoat and heading out into the woods. There is so much more beauty to be captured!
