Hope you had a wonderful first April weekend.

Both Lorraine and Laurene are correct to say Avocado. How did you guess?
My image last post of the avocados didn't look like avocados because they had dried up. I have since broken them up into tiny pieces and put them in the freezer until I'm ready to make a bath and "steep" them.

The image above is from Katherine Johana's blog: Wander the Woods.
There is also some detailed information on Sam's blog: All Natural Dying; if you are ever interested in trying it yourself. 


  1. I had heard of using avocados to produce a pink dye but I honestly didn't think those were avocados in your picture!
    I can't wait to see what you do with this!

    1. The avocados I have are dried out; maybe that's why they don't look right.
      It's going to take a while before I have results to show.
