Welcome to A Home For Tandy! My passion is to create hand made textile homewares and accessories using natural materials, coloured and printed with natural dyes. Here's where I document my processes from my home studio in Melbourne’s outer east as well as "show and tell" new products and exciting happenings. I hope what you find here will inspire creativity, nesting, nurturing and the appreciation of your own environment. Happy browsing!

Easter weekend is always a lovely time to involve the little ones in the family in some Easter related activities, and this year we spent time with my sister who's family now includes a four year old and a new born. As well as home-made hot cross buns and an Easter egg hunt, we tried our hands at decorating eggs. These coloured and patterned eggs, dyed in onion skins and garden leaves are a natural alternative to the usual blue and pink food dyed versions I remember doing as a kid. (I'm not sure Master Four was as enthralled through the entire process as I was!)
This is India Flint's method as described in her inspiring book Eco Colour.
I do hope you've all enjoyed some Easter family time too.
