I started 2017 with a thorough brooming of my workspace, which kept my body busy as my mind pondered what new project to start. Most of the things I'm working on now involve a very long process without many interesting interim stages to document, or to sense the progress. I came across a post somewhere on Instagram, that I, of course, cannot find today, about doing a bit of embroidery each day. So I pulled out an old jacket that I love the shape of, but don't much like the fabric. I'm not sure I've ever thrown out a scrap of fabric, so I have a box of tiny pieces that I thought I could use to repurpose the old jacket in the Japanese boro style. I had some thread I'd used in tying off my shibori pieces in the indigo dye vat, so I started stitching. Hopefully, I'll spend 10 minutes a day stitching, and document the progress each day.
