Why go to the mall to buy stuff for making things when you can visit a local park and forage the plants you need for your crafting adventures?
This little collection was foraged locally from laneways, nature strips and a park. They are being lovingly held in one of my woven baskets, awaiting their turn in the dye pot. Pomegranates, rose leaves and alder catkins (don't you just love the world catkins? I do!).
The beauty of using natural materials is being able to get them, straight from the source. And at the same time you're breathing in fresh air, getting exercise and looking up, down and all around. Much better than staring at a screen!
