tidying up

September 11, 2012

the loom is waiting while I do some finishing work

this collar is much nicer to wear with a scarf and the indigo dyed buttons are a good match

the scrap patch is finished

so –  on to another project

the sudoku inspired block that I first blogged about here and here

was a good size for a cushion, trimmed with indigo piping

the backing is an indigo/shibori fabric from the workshop in Japan

it feels good to get something finished

    The uninspired coat turned out fabulous! I think of things like this and then tell myself, “Nah.” I think I should not listen to my nay saying and just do it. The end result couldn’t be any worse when I am done and could actually turn out wonderful as you have proven here.

    Cheers to venturing out and trying!

      Renee – I wore the coat to the fibre events in Vancouver and got very nice comments from the experts. Rather pleased with the results.

    Jean, I am going to steal that design for the chopstick shibori. The shop in Atsugi is almost open. Now I need to fill the shelves quickly. Looks fresh and oceany.

      Bryan – post a picture, I would love to see the shop. It’s a relatively quick way to use a bold pattern and the Japanese use their zabuton. great idea – good luck.
