Pressure cooker experiments.

Waiting to be wrapped.
 Going to use pressure cooker for the first time! scary ...but l did it and it worked.
Can l wait to open bundlesor can l wait? No..opened it straight away!
 I am really pleased with the results. Old cream colored second-hand blanket, mordant was ash water and  Euclyptus leaves bundled inside.
 Another piece of wool, bundled with assorted leaves.

 I also wrapped copper labels into bundle.
Really liked the outcome of these blankets.
