Last sunday we had some lovely people in our house
to celebrate Man's birthday
(yeah : 17 ... sort of ...)
One of the visitors was wearing
this nice real Peru hat
The b i g piece I'm working on
will have lots and lots of pieces of fabric that have a special meaning to me,
(I think that's one of the fun parts of it)
Some of these snippets
have come from lovely people who live far away.
A lot of them I've had for some time already
and they were "patiently waiting" till I found some good use for them :
so Sus, Connie, Jacky, Heike, Eva, Jude ...
somewhere there will be a special place for a lot of your pieces.
I'm working on the "moon and stars"side now
(that will be the reverse of the "butterflies")
Thére was the perfect spot for some very dear
It's amazing how well the dark red background of the megamendung
fits in with the ikat fabric !
Today I did some tea-dyeing to take off the "bright white"
of some pieces and I wove a few strips in them.
Now they fit in with two little "Judes"
These parts will probably became corner pieces somewhere
The next fun part is the stitching of course
Mmmmm stitching !
