break in my paper diary for a moment...
"welcome" eeyore avatar
i talked to a lady at one of our local weekend markets today who makes her own paper!  i'm so excited to actually be able to TALK to someone who shares my interest in this fascinating craft.....my family are all very polite, but they just don't QUITE understand WHY i get so excited at times.  lol  they love me though, so they're patient!!

i'm still typing up my notes, though it's been a bit slow of late as i fell over and did a fair amount of soft tissue and ligament damage to both my arms, wrists and hands.  typing in an arm brace is EXTREMELY difficult!!  but things are improving slowly, the dr told me it'd take 6-8 weeks to heal, so i'm half-way there.

i'll keep working on my notes and posting them up for you to read - hopefully, somewhere, sometime, SOMEONE will actually find them helpful on their own paper journey.

on another note, i'd love to hear from anyone who makes their own papers or has an interest in natural dyeing....it gets a bit lonely talking to myself here at times  ;-)  i'd love to learn from you too.

Dyeing naturally

Hello Tuesday,
Your papers you make are fabulous, such beautiful texture, colours etc. Well done. I am enjoying dyeing naturally , here in south australia. Thanks for your interesting posts in the live journal. I look forward to following up and seeing/hearing more from you. i hope your hands are healing well? How frustrating for you! Sounds like you are being very patient and not letting you get you down. It must be nearly 6weeks by now?
I have registered as "OneOffsByMargie" to the Dyers forum/collective and awaiting approval etc.
I dye silk mainly, Shibori style dyeing. Some with the bright jacquard dyes (tye dyeing/Shibori)but more excitingly with natural dyes I boil up myself from leaves etc.
cheers Margie G
