the remains of Saturday's indigo vat
it didn't rain
could have been warmer
still a garden of blue at the end of the day
today the vat has revived itself
it's hot, hot, out there
so I can give this a couple more dips
it doesn't look too exciting does it?!!!
I bought about ten pieces of Khadi cloth from a small shop in Wagwam
to the surprise of everyone why would I want so many dusters?
Khadi cloth is hand spun cotton which is then hand woven
the cloth is really chunky and gorgeous, and yes it took the dye well
I only brought a couple of pieces home with me, the rest are in a
cupboard at Samshu's house, waiting their fate either as dusters or.......
found in my Chinese steamer, dried acanthus flowers
finished my therapy quilt, Dentil
Dentil n. architecture
one of a series of rectangular blocks projecting like teeth
from a moulding or beneath a cornice
Ha, ha. The dentist is my new 'best friend'
in between appointments hand stitching was very comforting, and now it's done
one or two appointments to go
I feel another quilt coming on
