Eco Colour, Paint and Punch Needle

Finished with the basic piece. Just need to stitch in the bunnies eyes and a few details.

Colors of paint I am loving right now....
(Excuse the backdrop...I was in a hurry :)
An interesting fact I learned about house paint: To get rid of paint fumes...add a tablespoon of vanilla extract to a gallon of paint, mix well. It supposedly does not effect paint color! And makes the whole room smell like vanilla. Will have to try this. 
Note: I have not tried this, but when I do paint I will try it and let you know.

A fabulous book loaned to me....

At some point and time this is something I would love to pursue.
Hand dying fabrics with natural dyes and "composting" dyes.

I know many creative souls out their have been doing this for the longest and I simply admire their work.

Happy Day!

  2. Hi Pixie,
    It is a wonderful book and one that is worth investing in. I think my little library would like this one. :)
