Increasing my level of tough girl | I am my father’s daughter...blood blister and all. When I was growing up, all of the men in my family seemed to at one point or another have a blue finger nail or a blood blister or some sort of hand injury. My husband and mother in law continue that and today I was baptized. #thosewhoworkwiththeirhands#reno#100yearoldfloors#oldfarmhouse#thefunks
// cochineal on wool //
I'm feeling a little conflicted about working with cochineal lately. The color is so beautiful but even if the bugs are sustainably harvested, I don't feel great about crushing them up for color. Is there another way to get these magenta/purple/reds?
