Newest eco-dyed scarves and work in progress

 These 3 scarves were eco-dyed using leaves I collected on my recent trip to Maine.  I was enamored by the different shades of green on the many different kinds of trees.  I don't know the names of the trees the leaves came from but some printed very well, some didn't pass on their colors to well.  The scarves on the left I will be stitching the short ends together so they'll look nice wrapped around the neck.  The lightly printed parts will compliment the dark areas.  One scarf for me and one for my friend with whom I visited up North.  A remembrance of our great time together.

The following image is one of three pieces in progress.  One stitch at a time.  No hurry.  I sure love the slow meditative pace hand stitching allows.

Two Ecoprinted Tops

This ecoprinting is quite addictive.  These two pieces of clothing were purchased at a thrift shop.  I am quite pleased.
