This chartreuse lichen makes such a beautiful yellow dye! I've been making some samples for my workshop this weekend and even though I've done this before, I always get so excited seeing white fiber turn color. It's so much fun! Join us on Saturday to learn more about dyeing with lichens. I can make room for a few more.
Took this little pincushion to the Peak District with me today, in case any photo opportunities presented themselves... Obviously they did - though whether the resultant pictures are any good remains to be seen! I am liking the lichen in this one... (also pleased to see that there is already a hashtag for #likinthelichen with 270-odd posts!) . #likinthelichen #lichen #patterns #naturalpatterns #mothernature #peakdistrict #miniphotoshoot #pincushion #eggcuppincushion #pincushioneggcup #pincushionlove #pincushionaddict #pincushioncrazy #upcycled
This tree was glowing with life today. #glowing #likinthelichen
Every derelict roof should have a wee bit of gold brocade to cheer itself up. Do not go gentle into that good night, I say, go out with 'tude and fancy knickers.👊💃 . #likinthelichen #glowhard #hemmingthesky #beautyindecay #skylight #barnreversion #twixtskyandearth #thoughtswhilewalking #berwickandbordersyoga
I once imagined deserts as dull and lifeless landscapes, dust cyclones and tumbleweeds rolling along the cracked skin of the earth. How wrong I was, now as I find myself completely fascinated by the variety of shapes, colors, and textures I never expected to encounter. Coming across this rock face during a hike, I had to take a moment to appreciate the goings on, an array of lichens carving out a home for themselves on sheer rock. Hard to believe, but these organisms could potentially outlast the rock itself, as they etch their way along its crevices, slowly grinding it down for centuries until mineral soil begins to accumulate and eventually sprout mosses, grasses, shrubs, and finally trees... Keep on chooglin’ little dudes!🤘🏼🦠🌱🌵

I don't know, that sounds like a challenge to me! (JK, I promise we didn't walk anywhere we weren't supposed to!) @merri.and.pippin and I kidnapped @ergocentricity after our park cleanup to hike the trails at the @jacksonvillearboretum. It was a cool, cloudy day perfect for traipsing among the ridiculously named flora and trying to find a path that covered as much of all the trails as possible. #hike21 #52hikechallenge2019 @52hikechallenge #jaxisrad #likinthelichen
If there was any debate about where my obsession with this particular shade of rust comes from, we can argue no longer. The source is most definitely lichen ✨
