Red 2 White

This Blog and her related Etsy Shops are definitely worth a visit.  Her work is so beautiful and inspiring – another designer-maker who I am jealous of!

I have been thinking about direct dyeing/printing from plants for a long time and this only makes me even more keen to try this out.  I am wondering how I can use natural dyeing and plant prints, combined with stitch, to interpret my fabulous Harris land and seascapes.

BUT this plan will have to wait as I am busy at the moment working on a couple of commissions and preparing for my pre Christmas show – details to follow shortly.


We stayed in Bac, just outside Stornoway, with views of the sea. A short walk took us to a little harbour and a beautiful, long sandy beach.

But best of all were the caves!

The landscapes and seascapes are so inspiring so I have lots of ideas for my future work (but still lots to do on my present focus so these will have to wait).
