Hand stitched (Kantha-style) naturally dyed silk, linen & cotton drawstring pouch. Many many many hours of work in this piece entirely stitched by hand using beautiful scraps from my dye pots. This pouch is useful & useable (I carry mine in my handbag with notebooks).

This gorgeous piece is from one of my #TheCreativeYear students - isn't it amazing! I'm in love @melissaristeen, such stunning work.

I finished my little naturally dyed basket last night! It's so tiny - about 9 cm in diameter. I think I've caught the bug now and will have to make another... Maybe a shallow bowl next time... and a taller vessel after that... It's lucky I bought a kilo of raffia  . It's such a lovely craft to do, especially in the winter when we are at home more.

This morning I hung out with some cool  dudes at the beach . Now I'm sitting in front of a fan weaving with raffia and trying to cool down. Life is good .

I love it hanging as a decoration ✨ #thecreativeyear #happyd...
