On the last retreat I went on in early July I bundled up a length of vintage woollen blanket and put into a pot to boil. It was full of various eucalyptus,wattle , avocado, onion skins , lichen and gum nuts. When opened there were some lovely subtle marks. There was imprints of the gum nuts. I am going to cut out arm holes and add stitch, lace pieces braids and extra ecodyed wool pieces. I had better get on with it before winter ends so I can wear it.
