blue and yellow

 indigo and silk.
stitching on the indigo flax paper is making me so happy!
 working this surface is very different than sewing with linen or kami-ito
the silk is easy and wide.
you can see that one french knot made an appearance.
so far.
 little filaments all stuck together with seracin 
 there are little dots on the paper's surface
that showed up with the dyeing
i'm exploiting dot-ness.
 this double sheet was made at pbi.
the inclusions are rubberbands that were sliced when removing
from another of Mary's projects.
i'm happy to give them this new life
playing with their shapes and, of course, poking holes.
truly, more holes may appear.
and knots.
and stitches.
the heat we're having interferes with hot projects,
but i have made a bunch more big sheets of heavy flax.
going to bring them home today.
