More indigo gals!

I was in Jamaica again, yes, Jamaica, VT last weekend, teaching another group of gals how to dye with indigo. We all met at and set up on the front lawn. It was a gorgeous morning, quite crisp with lots of sun. Around noontime a woman came across the street to say there was a downpour about 15 minutes to the south in Townsend and we may want to move under cover. She was right and there was about that much time to reset on the porch, eat lunch and commence with more dipping. Beautiful blues were created as well as some greens that one student had yarns she dyed with marigold and other flowers and then dipped in indigo. The rain could not wash out the creative juices!
