I hope you are all doing well!

This week, I’ve spent all mornings working on the Christmas products in the kitchen! I am experimenting with natural dyes, and it has been a lot of fun to discover new techniques. So far, my favourite colour is this rich red-orange (but at the moment, a sunny yellow is brewing, so I might need to change my opinion soon!). I cannot wait to share more of this project with you: cross your fingers it works out! So far the process has been very interesting. Each step is a bit long, but I love that everything is natural and kitchen grade, meaning I don’t have to deal with using and disposing of harsh chemicals. It is also fascinating to be working with plants that have been used for hundreds of years to dye fabrics and yarns!

I am also still working on the creativity course. I have filmed about half of the demos I have written down. It has been really fun to work on these and to revisit old favourites.

Outside of the atelier, we have started harvesting some herbs and salad greens in the garden! It is so fun to be able to go outside at lunch and pick a little of this and that to eat right away. We also had a few strawberries from the plants we planted last year. We weren’t expecting them to come back, but they are strong! Mind you, we would need about a 100 more to have a decent harvest, but still, it is nice to have these sweet treats as we walk in the garden.

That’s it!
Until next week,

Take care 🧡🧡🧡


I am obsessed with these little watercolour cards and couldn’t resist adding this set of Canadian wild flowers.


I got this book when I first started working with watercolours. I love how dreamy and beautiful each flower is!

Over here for the full review!

A small treat…

Such incredible skills, and steely nerves to be working on amazing pieces like these!
