Solar dyeing during the gloomiest month of the year is tricky but two weeks later, I decided it was time to open her up! These giant Marigolds were from @urbanrootsfarm and gave a very bright, sunny yellow!

Throwing back to 2016 and one of my favorite pieces that found a home. What weaving techniques are you trying out lately? How are you using a familiar technique in a fresh way?

Look at that squishy roving! Grab your Beginner’s Weaving Kits in the shop before the Christmas rush. Choose maple (my personal favorite) or cherry! You can also grab a large adjustable loom in maple if you’re ready for something on a larger scale! Click through the link to shop looms and tools.

I’ve already started with the Frank Sinatra holiday classics on iTines. Not even sorry about it.

Hello! If you’re at all new to Smile and Wave, I’m Rachel Denbow. I’m the gal that can’t stop with all of the dyeing over here! Plants! I’m like a moth to a flame with them right now. When I’m not dyeing wool with madder root, I’m dyeing cotton with indigo. When my hands aren’t stained blue, I’m teaching weaving workshops and peddling artisanal weaving looms and tools. I’m a big proponent of making time to make things and will always cheer you in that direction. It’s good for us on all levels! If you’re interested in learning to weave, I’ve recently released a beginner’s weaving e-course called Woven: First Steps and offer complete weaving kits in my shop! If you’re interested in natural dyeing, that e-course is in the works! Signing up for my newsletter is a sure bet you’ll hear about it first! (Sign up on Even if you only come for the occasional kitten picture, I️’m glad you’re here and appreciate all of the love. 📷 by

Thank you, Liz, for borrowing some eucalyptus from the neighbors and @gulushthreads for helping me pick off the leaves to haul home to my dye pot!

Spent the afternoon at this beautiful home in San Diego styling our projects for @thecraftersbox. It was that perfect mix of great design and livability. Check out @cestesdesign’s feed for more home inspiration!

Finished my workshop filming with @thecraftersbox yesterday and spent the rest of the day talking shop with the other makers here. We spent at least five solid hours lounging in this beautiful weather, some stitching final projects, some testing patterns, some working on laptops, some enjoying the chance to just sit. It was just what I️ needed to pause this month and connect with women who know the challenges (and excitement) of running a small business. Waking up slowly with some hot coffee and Joni Mitchell this morning with gratitude.

What colors do you use when the seasons change? Do you find yourself holding on to favorites year round or pulling in seasonal hues? 🍂🌖🧦
