Since his old one became too disreputable I made him a new one for the new year… evidently his new year resolution is not to give up smoking!

More indigo dying, this time experimenting with other coloured fabric. It seemed funny to do it in winter, having such associations of indigo and warmth after spending the magical day in summer doing it. But lovely none the less we were in upwey village hall, accompanied by potters in the studio next door so unpicking shibori stitches was interluded with watching the raku firing process. http://www.crumbleholme.plus.com/uppot/uppotrak.htm
