As I posted a couple of days ago, rhubarb leaves are supposed to be a good mordant (fixative) when dyeing clothes with veg dyes, e.g. beetroot, red cabbage, onions etc.

Here's some ideas I've put into practise recently:-
- using old envelopes for shopping lists
- leaving my oven door open after cooking to help heat the room
- when making 2 cups of tea using 1 tea bag (I like my tea pretty weak anyway)
- if I find tiny holes in t-shirts caused by them snagging on zips on other items of clothing I'll darn them and cover over with beads or sequins and arrange in a pattern (started this using a small bead necklace found at a jumble sale for 10p). This also works for updating clothes too.
- in the colder weather I'll wear my summer vest tops with complimentary coloured long sleeved tops, saves buying lots of clothes and keeps you warm.
- when I snapped the laces on my deck shoes I used the ribbon out of my tops I keep and tied them together to make pretty laces.
