opening a gift from the sun

a rosette display of solar dyed fabrics with coreopsis dyebath

Following up last month’s post on solar dyeing, I left a few glass jars filled with coreopsis and eucalyptus in the sun. Today, I went to open the jars and found the bundles all mushy and smell funny. I think it is because I left it out too long in the sunlight. Anyway, it was fun to see what’s in store for me.
