Natural dyeing

Trawling round the net the other evening for compost dyeing (staining) I found a site for using garden plants for dyeing. One of the recipes used rosemary and I have several large rosemary bushes in my garden that need pruning. This morning I was out there with my shears and a large bucket to fill with clippings, and it is now simmering on the stove in an old saucepan that fortunately had missed my clean ups. I need to wash floors and things before getting into mordanting fabric and marking it so playtime has to end for the moment. I will let you know what happens to the fabric.
