It’s cool. And sunny. A good day to read.
And maybe attach a bamboo skewer to the back of this one and call it done.
I dyed all of the indigo scraps except for the Shibori with the tree stitched on it. The curving vintage linen also done here, but with black walnut. Deb Lacativa probably dyed that brilliant yellow textile shining in the middle of the lower band.
You’re making me want to get those blue hands going again…
I haven’t dyed for years now.
Yum…the density of color and all those tiny stitches like thoughts.
Or the absence of thoughts…
Also, beautiful images of this piece, so evocative.
What’s the book like?
It’s contemporary. Set in London. I might call it a reflection on trauma and heartbreak. So it’s not a cheery read but it’s well wrought and worth the time. It’s not very long.
I think the light through cloth is one of my most favorite things. Your stitched cloth is beautiful.
It’s one of my favorite things, too.
