I'm running out of things to say about all this. I sewed some more stitches...
Today I went back through and tied off all the dangling threads and finished the odd stitch that was left for later.
I found a nice bit of an indigo dyed block print twill from India that was the perfect weight to cover the pocket. It's sturdy enough that it will bear up to repeated rubbings. I think I'll add some more stitched in the other direction.
I found a stash of Japanese prints I'd lost track of and found they work well. Once again I'm struck by the different cultural applications of indigo. So far on this piece I've got Japan, India, Africa and the Foothills of L.A.
Very blue today.
Today I've added a piece of block printed cotton. If you've been following along you might have some sense of where this is, having seen the piece on the right and the piece on the bottom in prior pictures. I'm going to continue photographing close up pictures until I begin the decorative stitchin. Until then, it remains a mystery. To me most of all!
