Take an old book of photographic prints the college library was selling off cheap, a dye pot and a collection of odds and ends of embroidery threads that had been knocking about for ages.
Fill the dye pot with dye.
Add more dye for a deeper colour.
Re dye parts of afore mentioned threads.
Add another colour of dye to pot.
Re dye other parts of threads.
Hang up to dry.
Scalpel pleasing page from the art book.
Using dyed threads embroider bullion knot flowers.
Carry on embroidering flowers for a long time, a very long time.

P.S sorry about the placing of the pictures, blogger is driving me to distraction this evening!
