My most recent eco-colour adventure included an epic bike ride with the hubby. Epic, since it resulted in us getting lost in Montreal...or off Montreal rather. We thought we were in Verdun, and when we asked for directions for the city centre of Verdun (for eats) we were given directions off the island--Nuns Island. We were pretty amazed that we ended up on another island without knowing it. It was a long ride to say the least.
On this island was a large patch of dark red leafy plants which I decided would be included in my next cold-bundle, along with some yellow onion skins we have been collecting during meal making. I wrapped the two in dry mordanted silk, wet it and then sat it in a shallow pool of brazilwood dye-stock-solution for a week. This morning I unwrapped it and VOILA! Happy day.
