Meditation through Hand Stitch

(Alternative post title “Keeping your hands busy during the evenings so you don’t nibble”)

I’m going to create a series of works I’ve named “5 process cloth”.

1. Dye
2. Paint
3. Stitch
4. Bead
5. Piece

The process is a l-o-n-g one.  I should time myself, hundred plus hours for each piece.
Maybe even hundreds of hours.  Here one is in the process of being stitched.

Rayon fabric hand dyed with procion dye, markal paint over Indian printing blocks,
threads by Stef Francis and 21stC Yarns. Beads will be various as collected over the years.

Here is an example from a  few years ago.

    I so relate to this!Especially long winter evenings. We have long days with daylight saving at the moment here in NZ so it's not quite so bad.

    These look so interesting. Gorgeous colours. I will be most interested to see progress reports.
