Soothing Stitches


Hundreds of silken stitches in shimmering habotai.
Rusty traces reminiscent of ancient shores. 

A few pieces of summer's natural dye experiments 
collide head on with my love of Kantha cloth. 
Swoon. 
These photos are of a commissioned piece I'm working on - 
delightful hours transported to a faraway land.

The Studio is a beautiful and exciting place to be, 
a productive retreat from this bone-chilling deep freeze!
Also happening in the Studio are a new (traditional) quilt, 
two art quilts and a handful of developing wool & cotton quilt designs.
Stay tuned for updates, and keep warm!

  2. Thank you, Clarice! I'll definitely show the whole piece here once it's finished. Just a few more touches involving embroidery and some silk sari strips - it's a wonderful piece to work on, and I'm pretty sure there will be more to follow...;)
