We had a fun time in the kitchen this last week dyeing with items from the cupboard.  This was fun experiment with Tumeric, Avocado pits, Onion skins and Coffee.  All dyeing is a bit experimental and especially when you are working with "natural" dyes.  There are so many variables between the fibers and dye stuffs. We were surprised by most of the results and I think were pretty pleased.  I do wish the avocados had been pinker.  Well, that means I need to keep collecting pits and skins and try
again.
