Pomarium launched

just before Christmas I started the Cloister Garden series from Chatelaine design, which are Pomarium (fruits), Herbularius (herbs), Tinctorium (dyes), and Rosarium (roses). I am not fully convinced I will do the roses, but the other 3 are beautiful, and since they are huge, they will occupy me for the upcoming years...
And antique white wins

Pomarium trial run on tea dyed fabric - Pear

After finishing Knotgarden series I am into Cloister Gardens (fruits, dyes, herbs, roses), and i was thinking taking a new background and try tea dyeing. I made a trial run for Pomarium fabric, this is my own dying. Despite the fact that the dying itself went well, I cannot imagine stitching 3-4 years on this colour, so I reverted to good old antique white for the whole piece. It took me a week to finish the Pear
