Blackberries, Silk and Linen

Now curing on a tree limb out back:  two silk scarves dyed with a couple of handfuls of blackberries, and a linen sample dyed with an assortment of pansy petals and blackberries.

They'll need to dry for a while and then just sit around for another while, and then get laundered gently, dried and then pressed.

'Think I'll finish the scarves with some crocheted bobbles to weight their ends, and the little linen sample seems to cry out "reticule"!  I could see it with drawstrings and tassels, as a sweet little evening bag, just big enough for a phone, cash and keys.  You could slip it over your wrist and dance the night away.
