How does a Blog Crawl Work?


How does a blog crawl work?  What happens is come late Friday night I put up a list on my blog of all of the participating blogs in the blog crawl.  Then those participants copy that list from my blog and post it to their blogs.  This allows for the blog crawl, featuring Woad and Indigo, to go viral!  There are many artists working with Woad and Indigo this month so I'm hoping that those who are will participate so that we can show the world the beautiful fabrics and fibers being dyed with woad an indigo!

Hope you participate as well.

Not worth my time collecting to use in a dye pot, any color it would yeild would fade in a matter of days, if not hours.  The stems would yeild a weak yellow at best.  But given the current extreme heat Iowa is experiencing it is one of the few plants that has survived in my garden without needing watering.

Indigo Blog Crawl Continues!

This month's particpants will be listed over several posts since it's easier to list them this way than to keep updating an older post.
