turmeric dye

I've had my eye in this turmeric dye for quite some time. Luckily 
 I came across great inspiration from Ellie Beck at petalplum
If you're itching about natural dyes..
 she is the queen to go to. 
Her blog is chock full of natural goodness and beauty.

 I love love this rich yellow color
