preparations

Indigo, holds something 
magic
for me.

And because the process isn't easy at all,
because I don't have much room
(inside or outside) for dyeing
I'm very happy that I'm attending an 
indigo workshop
tomorrow !
Yeaaahhh !

So this week was time for preparations for that.



On some lovely green silk
(a birthday present from last year)
I started stitching ...
and pulling tight !

I don't know all the Japanese names
for the different kinds of shibori
but you can find a LOT about it on the net.

The whole green strip is stitched now
and now I'm busy on an old T shirt of daughter
and an off white silk "camisole"

I'm delighted to have little bits of fabric
on which I can dye my own indigo  moons 
(like the ones Glennis and Jude make)


One piece finished :
ready for the dye pot !
