the bojagi is growing

bojagi 101

the French seams are each stitched three times

there are countless tiny stitches already

bojagi 103

it is difficult to know when to stop

I plan to stitch a dark indigo border around it but the fabric stash hasn’t yielded an appropriate piece of linen

weaving-finishing 302

weaving a scarf with the elastic silk in stripes

and Bryan’s  fine reeled silk  that I brought back from Japan

the little curly bits in the center are the silk ribbon used to tie the skein before dyeing

spring 200

a mystery plant has grown 3 feet tall in the border, a gift from the birds or the wind

seeds-pods 015

the seed heads are very impressive

    I think your mystery flower may be salsify. Does it have long pale greeny,grey leaves? It can become invasive but is easily uprooted when young, alternatively you can eat the root when the plant is mature. Make sure it is salsify first though I don’t want to be responsible for any upset tums.

      Debbie – thanks,I will check out the salsify.the seeds heads are very interesting but I’ve been pruning them before they send the seeds all over.

      Lis – there are even some small pieces from “the workshop” but almost finished now, will have to go back!!
