is s l o w stitching
It's a kind of meditative activity
(though I lóve free stitching on my machine
this kind of boro stitching I'm doing now
is really something else)
The loveliest piece of Megamendung silk Jude once send me
is like a pair of wings on the back of the jacket.
When it was glue-stitched I didn't like the way it suddenly stopped
at the edge of the silk strip that once became the top of an evening dress
so I made white (silk) running stitches
to connect it with the piece of embroidered cotton
that was intended to become a Mexican skirt
(but never wás one)
Sometimes the ideas that pop up in my head are so many,
the stitching just goes too slowly !!!
But now that a lot of pieces are attached to the background
I can easier make my choices.
It really is FUN !
