The Man from Aliquilts and marigolds

This is the man that grows the marigolds at Aliquilts - and this is how we spent yesterday afternoon, under the watchful eye of the Mighty Miss Midget. We used three different varieties of marigold, three different pots and different combinations of mordant. Lots of silk ... lots of lovely colours.

I have a le creuset cassrole dish that I ruined by overcooking quince paste one time. I was going to put it out on the verge but your photos prompt me to keep it /give it away for eco-dyeing. Thank you!

I get the gold -- I've seen it with yarn -- but the magenta? Wow! Still marigold?
