Half and Half

Half and Half…C and C?  A new drink name!!  No!  More fun, a new tee-shirt.  Half backyard and half imported.  Half bug and half flower. Half coreopsis and half cochineal! All natural!!

Coreopsis gives such a wonderful color…my small samples are orange.  Using more fabric  the color goes to gold. Lovely, and pleasing with the cochineal.  Unfortunately, the cochineal isn’t from my backyard…many little bugs, maybe from Peru or Mexico, gave their all for this wonderful color!
