another bojagi finished

December 11, 2012

I’ve been cutting and piecing this scarf on the dining room table

finished just in time – the table is needed for other things

bojagi 086

the weather is dark and grey – not good for picture-taking

bojagi 087

other than the shibori,  that inspired the piece

there are  several different kimono silks,  silk dye samples, the border was dyed with logwood

the purple square in the upper right was woven 0n a weave-it loom with silk ribbon

bojagi 089

an eco- dyed piece, with stitching added, from the workshop in Japan

bojagi 088

and an old camisole with its original inset stitching

thousands of tiny stitches –  three separate rows for each seam

      Aimee – rainy days ( we get lots at this time of year) are an excuse to stay inside and weave, spin or stitch. Considering the weather around the world I give thanks for living on the Wet Coast

    What a nice piece. Is it all hand stitched?

        Amazing. I remember watching my grandmother make massive quilts completely handstitched.

    Fabulous. I’m running out of superlatives to respond to your work! I can just see you in your indigo coat with that scarf.

      Heather – that is funny, I’ve just come back from coffee with a friend and I wore my old saki-ori jacket and “the” scarf
