I added hand dyed indigo thread that I stitched onto the collage.
15" square mixed media collage created over eight months by me and seven other artists: @samo_saves_idiots @carylst @turnerartmom @redcarpetluke @portico88 @margaretlazzari @herecomeseverybody.
Each artist worked individually on a layer and then sent it off to the next person on the rotation. This one is titled The Postman Rings Twice.

Sashiko Fukin (=Dish Cloth) is very common in Sashiko in Japan. It is one of the beginner's project.
"The true beauty of Sashiko is in the ordinary days." It is the origin & core concept of Sashiko. However, with sincere respect to the origin, I would like to try if Sashiko can be the part of Art. 2 kinds of challange. One with 2 shades of Indigo Dye. One with 2 kinds of beautiful Pastel Color Sashiko Thread.
The process of Sashiko Fukin project is on Youtube and on our website, upcyclestitches.com. ★
Il y a toujours 5 minutes pour tisser sur un métier manuel.
C'est magique ce que l'on peut faire avec des fils naturels et de la teinture à l'indigo.
Many thanks to the brave souls who braved yesterday's truly wicked wind and rain to attend the indigo class and movie night out at HiiH. It was wonderful to share blue with all of you! Gratitude also to @hiih_lights , whose hospitality and beautiful lights created a warm welcoming atmosphere for the evening. I'm looking forward to their spring class series. My camera's memory was full yesterday, so alas no pictures from the class to share. (Note to self, make sure you transfer vacation photos prior to teaching a class...) However, as I was unpacking the car this afternoon this indigo dyed cotton was glowing in the overcast light. I'm awaiting my turn on our eight harness loom so I can turn it into yardage for a bog jacket. #i 💙indigo #indigothread#naturaldye#handweaving#handdyed#gratitude#bravingtheelements
