leaf dye-pot

A bowl that's sitting in my garden; rainwater & leaves. And like the Kraken, deep underwater, lurk 2 pieces of fabric, soaking up the primeval ooze...and hopefully making wonderful marks and patterns, while they wait.
I've decided to leave these 2 pieces in a long time; there's a piece of silk which has leaves wrapped into it, and a piece of cotton which is pre-mordanted with soya-milk. This is slow dye-ing, for sure!
And I just had to include this photo! Taken this week on a day-trip to Skelmanthorpe! Worth it, just for the laugh this notice gave me.
