It was a glorious sunny day but Jed didn't want to go to the beach or for a bikeride. He wanted to do the dyeing project we've been talking about for weeks. And so!

For a small person that loves crafting, colour, mixing and muslin play cloths...this was an afternoon of heaven.

Very proud craftsperson at the end of a busy afternoon.

My heart was glad to see these colours against the blessing of a blue sky that we had today, instead of the forecasted rain...hoorah!

Aucklander's: I will be at the Titirangi Mum's Craft market on Saturday and a few of you were asking where to buy GrowMama gear in a retail outlet-check out Lets Go Retro on Swanson Rd. Etsy, felt and trademe will all be re-stocked next week. (I sincerely hope.)

Last chance to enter Angela's giveaway and read her Creative Mama HERE.

May your week be all you need it to be!


  1. These look absolutely beautiful.

  2. He looks pretty satisfied! What sort of dyes did you use?

  3. Ha! We used the old bog standard Dylon dyes that i used in my teenage hippy tie dying days...and now we are experimenting with local natural dyes, which is what i used in Europe. Much fun. Concoctions, potions and experiments...
